Clean Air Cocoon For the Optimal Surgery Environment
“ABS is today’s solution to surgical wound contamination due to airborne particulates”
The Air Barrier System has been shown in randomized, controlled trials to reduce the presence of potentially infection-causing airborne bacteria at surgical incision sites by more than 84%. This innovative technology can play a very important role in minimizing the risk of surgical site contamination during implant surgery. The Air Barrier System allows the surgeon to create a purified air environment around every incision for every patient.
The set-up is simple and easy to use. There are two pieces: a blower unit that provides filtered air into a sterile, disposable nozzle that is attached by Velcro adjacent to the incision. Before the incision, simply turn on the blower unit and the ABS then delivers a constant flow of purified air over the incision site that prevents microbes from entering the wound.
