1. Johanna, CST, is scheduled to be the first scrub on a procedure at 8:00 AM in which a laser will be used to obliterate abnormal tissue in the larynx. She is preparing for the case.
2. What are some common concerns as it pertains to electrosurgical and laser plume in the OR? What can one do to protect him/herself from it? Does this make you apprehensive about working in the operating room environment?
