Improved Clinical Outcomes for Patients

Clinical studies have demonstrated numerous benefits of a low pressure approach with AirSeal® in laparoscopic and Da Vinci urology procedures compared to standard insufflation, including:

Reduced length of stay, significant reduction in 30-day ER visits & readmissions, and reduction in ileus & inflammation1-5

Reduced postoperative pain and episodes of nausea6

Shorter procedure times6

Improved ventilatory metrics, including lower Pplat, MV, etCO2, and CO2 elimination7

“One of the advantages of the AirSeal® System is that you have a constant pneumo pressure, so no matter how much suction, you’re going to have a constant pneumo and venous bleeding becomes less of a problem.”
