The SAF-T-VAC is a simple device comprised of three parts: (1) the SAF-T-VAC device, which includes the universal suction tubing adapter, the proprietary designed suction tip and the suction tube. (2) The helix retention attachment which helps keep the tubing in close proximity to the electro-scalpel handle and allow for the perfect positioning of the suction tubing by the surgeon. (3) The electrode adapter is used when using a needle tip electrode in the electro-scalpel. It is a silicone sleeve that is placed over the needle tip and then inserted into the tip of the Saf-T-Vac.

Over 150 hazardous chemicals have been identified in surgical smoke. There are at least 500,000 healthcare workers exposed to laser or electrosurgical smoke each year. Furthermore, it is estimated that the use of 27-30 unfiltered cigarettes is equivalent to the average daily impact of surgical smoke to the OR team.
