LEXION AP 50/30

The AP 50/30 is the world’s first comprehensive pneumo management system created for the surgeon and the patient. It delivers 100% CO2 to reduce the incidence of subcutaneous emphysema as compared to CO2 with added air.*

Pneumoperitoneum has never been more consistent even in the most extreme conditions of surgery.

With specific TAMIS mode settings, the AP 50/30 from Lexion critically provides for tissue stability due to its ability to deliver continual flow of CO2.  This is proven to be fundamentally important for TATME / TAMIS.  Optimal visualisation is achieved through continual smoke evacuation from the surgical field.

 

Following the outbreak of COVID-19, surgical societies released the following statements:

  • Make use of a closed smoke evacuation/filtration system with Ultra Low Particulate Air Filtration (ULPA) capability (AAGL)
  • Laparoscopic suction may be used to remove surgical plume and desufflate the abdominal cavity (AAGL)
  • Do not vent pneumoperitoneum into the room (AAGL)
  • Minimize leakage of CO2 from the trocars (Annals of Surgery)
  • Avoid using two way pneumoperitoneum insufflators to prevent pathogens colonization of circulating aerosols in pneumoperitoneum circuit of the insufflator (Annals of Surgery)
  • For laparoscopic procedures, use of devices to filter released CO2 for aerosolized particles should be strongly considered (SAGES)
  • Keep intraoperative pneumoperitoneum pressure and CO2 ventilation at the lowest possible levels without compromising the surgical field exposure (Annals of Surgery)
  • Employ electrosurgical and ultrasonic devices in a manner that minimizes production of plume, with low power setting and avoidance of long desiccation times (AAGL)
