AirSeal® iFS

Intelligent Flow System

AirSeal® is the ONLY insufflator backed by clinical data.

35 peer-reviewed studies across five specialties demonstrated that AirSeal®:

Maintains Stable Pneumoperitoneum1,2

Ensures Constant Smoke Evacuation

Improves Patient Outcomes3-12,14

Enhances Procedural Efficiency8,13-15

Improves Respiratory Metrics3-5,10

Pressure Precision

AirSeal® enables you to perform surgery at low pressure with confidence, knowing you will maintain your working space. Unlike conventional high-flow insufflation, AirSeal® maintains a stable pneumoperitoneum even with large leaks and heavy suction.1,2


Uninterrupted Visibility

AirSeal® provides uninterrupted visibility and clear operative fields through stable pneumoperitoneum and constant smoke evacuation, enabling you to operate efficiently at low pressure.1,2


Proprietary Design

A patented cannula design creates a responsive air barrier, ensuring CO2 flow and pressure consistency. This enables a low pressure approach without compromising surgical exposure.





Patients Benefit from Low Pressure

Shorter PACU Stays8,10

Lower 30-Day ER Readmission Rates7,16

Improved Ventilation Metrics3,4,10,16

Published data also shows that laparoscopic surgery with AirSeal® at low pressure, versus standard insufflation, improved postoperative pain scores.5-12

AirSeal®’s proprietary cannula design ensures uninterrupted CO2 flow and simultaneous smoke evacuation to create a responsive air barrier that maintains a stable pneumoperitoneum. This is different from devices that attempt to deliver multiple functions through the same lumen.

  • Multiple lengths and sizes
  • Bladeless optical and blunt tip configurations
  • Only one required per procedure


airseal access port with call outs

CONMED and Intuitive Surgical's collaboration brings you the AirSeal® Robotic Solution. This enables seamless integration with the da Vinci X and XI systems* - without the need for an assist port.

airseal robotic solution

A 3-in-1 Solution to Accommodate Every OR

AirSeal Mode offers constant pressure control, enhanced visualization and surgical exposure, smoke evacuation and filtration. For use with AirSeal® Access Ports or AirSeal® Robotic Solution.

Smoke Evacuation Mode offers insufflation and smoke evacuation and filtration. For use with two conventional trocars.

Standard Mode offers insufflation with the use of a conventional trocar.

“I can’t emphasize enough how much AirSeal® has helped both myself and my patients. I believe in AirSeal® because it improves my patients’ outcomes and maintains my surgical exposure… even in smokey cases and when I have a high BMI patient.”

“After hundreds of cases and a significant amount of data collected in our research studies, I was confident that the AirSeal® System would become the new standard of care. I will not operate without it.”
