As a member of the ESLD, we kindly invite you to participate in a very brief survey concerning laser-induced smoke.
Physicians are repeatedly exposed to surgical smoke during laser therapy and electro surgery. A growing body of evidence shows that surgical smoke contains hazardous substances that poses a potential health hazard. However, few health care facilities have hard-set requirements when it comes to implementing systems to reduce exposure to smoke.
This web-based survey is conducted in collaboration with the ESLD and provides us with a very comprehensive profile of attitudes toward the hazard of surgical smoke, as well as the availability and actual use of protective measures.
The results of this survey will be reported on the ESLD website.
The short survey is completely anonymous and takes less than 5 minutes to complete.
Please share with us your opinion via this short questionnaire:
Thank you very much for your time and cooperation. Your opinion is very important to us.
