Founded in 1989, Coastal Life Systems, also known as CLS Surgimedics, started in Corpus Christi, Texas as a small distributor for cardiovascular perfusion products essential for heart bypass surgeries. Over the years, the company significantly broadened its scope beyond cardiovascular surgery, stepping into various other medical fields such as Gastroenterology, General Surgery, Urology, Gynecology, ENT, Neonatology, Orthopedics, and Dermatology.
Today, CLS Surgimedics is renowned for its innovative design and manufacture of surgical smoke evacuators and related products, contributing greatly to safer operating environments. This transition from a specialized distributor to a multifaceted medical equipment manufacturer attests to the company's adaptability and dedication to enhancing healthcare outcomes.
Among the robust portfolio of CLS Surgimedics, the Surgimedics Surgifresh Turbo Smoke Evacuator System stands out as a testament to the company's commitment to safety and innovation. Now available for purchase at MFI Medical, this advanced system is designed to clean operating rooms by eliminating surgical smoke, and reduces healthcare-related infection risks. Its unique filtration system uses an ULPA filter and a replaceable prefilter, which prolongs the life of the primary filter and reduces costs. With a user-friendly interface, this system is suitable for a wide range of procedures, easy to move, and offers hands-free operation. It's also compatible with the Armstand Assistant (#907001) for secure tubing placement and is recommended for all electrosurgical and laser procedures.
In addition to the Surgifresh Turbo Smoke Evacuator System, CLS Surgimedics offers an extensive range of surgical smoke evacuation accessories designed to enhance the system's effectiveness and adaptability. These accessories, which include various filters, tubing, and adaptors, facilitate efficient and safe smoke evacuation during a wide array of surgical procedures.
The Surgimedics Armstand Assistant is a carefully designed tool that brings added efficiency and convenience to surgical procedures. It adeptly holds smoke evacuation tubing securely at the tissue impact site using resilient Velcro straps, ensuring a steady and reliable position. This design not only provides practicality, but also addresses the challenge of limited space in procedure rooms by eliminating the need for additional personnel to manage the tubing. Its full adjustability enables compatibility with different setup requirements, enhancing its usability in diverse surgical contexts. Importantly, the Armstand Assistant showcases its versatility by being compatible with not just Surgimedics smoke evacuation systems, but all brands of smoke evacuation tubing, making it an adaptable and cost-effective solution for any operating environment.
Vacuum tubing plays a crucial role in surgical smoke evacuation, being responsible for collecting and directing surgical smoke towards an evacuator for filtration. The Surgimedics Sterile 3/8" x 10' Vacuum Tubing can be used with any smoke evacuator with a 3/8" port. Surgimedics supplies a range of vacuum hoses, medical tubing, and adapters for effective surgical smoke containment. This tubing features a smooth inner surface to enhance flow rates and minimize noise. Along with various adapters, this ensures the right tubing can be chosen for each procedure. Correct tubing size and placement are essential for efficient smoke evacuation. Tubing should be placed as close as possible to the procedure site to effectively capture surgical smoke, as distance reduces evacuator efficiency, potentially letting smoke escape into the room.
The Surgimedics Tubing Adapter, also known as a tubing reducer, is a necessary accessory for linking smoke evacuation vacuum tubing and medical tubing. This non-sterile component plays a crucial role in maintaining seamless operations during medical procedures, demonstrating Surgimedics' attention to detail and commitment to complete surgical solutions.
In summary, CLS Surgimedics' trajectory from a small distributor to a leading manufacturer of medical equipment demonstrates its adaptability and commitment to improving healthcare. Its diverse range of products, such as the Surgifresh Turbo Smoke Evacuator System and the practical Armstand Assistant, ensures safer and more efficient surgical environments. As CLS Surgimedics continues to innovate, its legacy as a significant player in enhancing healthcare outcomes remains solid.
