As a surgical staff member, a patient, or a patient advocate, knowing about these dangers is important but it’s what you DO with this information that will create change. Take action today to eliminate surgical smoke in your O.R. by providing education about surgical smoke hazards. Use a smoke evacuator wherever/whenever surgical smoke is produced and get involved in surgical smoke legislation. Reach out to your state representative to find out how to get started or use the ‘Go Clear’ resource available through AORN.
