Complete Solutions for Capturing & Recovering Anesthetic Waste
Where’s Your Vented Anesthetic Waste Going?
During clinical use, only less than 5% of inhalation anesthetic used for surgeries general anesthesia is metabolized by the patient. Subject to minor losses in the recovery room and undesired incidental leaks in the Operating Room, a vast majority of the remaining 95% is expelled unabated into the near-by environment via hospital’s ventilation system.
These gases are recognized as health and occupational hazard in the OR and when released into the atmosphere become aggressive GHGs, harmful to the environment and public health.
Which has led us at Focus Healthcare Products to partner with Blue-Zone to bring this service to the U.S. Another great partnership, and one that brings two new products and services into in our Sustainable Technologies portfolio that can help healthcare facilities on their route to sustainability and develop circular operations.
Blue Zone specializes in Cradle-to-Cradle stewardship which falls directly in line with our vision of Eco-Smart healthcare. Taking the emissions from anesthetic exhaust and then reprocessing it into generic anesthesia that can be re-sold, a truly circular model.
