  • Causa
    An ecri member hospital reports that when using the model 0606-0300-50 laserscope pulsar / carbon dioxide (co2) lasers for throat surgery, the otolaryngologist complained that the helio / neon laser beam (hene) which indicates the area where the laser will reach the tissue, was not clear enough to be used.
  • Acción
    ECRI makes the following recommendations: (1) Examine the target beam conditions of any Pulsar / Paragon CO2 laser in your hospital during inspection and preventive maintenance to detect any wear of the attenuator over time. Make sure that the aiming beam is immediately visible, especially when used with external light sources. (2) If the beam does not appear to be clear enough, make sure it is set to maximum intensity. If this does not solve, exclude other problems, such as those involving the micro manipulator or wear of the HeNe tube or the power source. (3) If the attenuator is the problem, consider removing the HeNe attenuator assembly (or ask the Laserscope manufacturer to do so). By doing so, you will be avoiding the effort and expense of having to incorporate a Laserscope crosshair upgrade kit, however this will also eliminate the ability to adjust the beam brightness (4) If this does not work , install the Laserscope NeHe upgrade kit.
