Power Systems, Otolaryngology
Definition : Systems designed for use as a source of electric power to powered otolaryngology instruments and/or other powered devices used in otolaryngology procedures. The systems may include irrigation capabilities. These systems usually consist of a main unit that provides electric power to detachable handpieces appropriate to drive dedicated otolaryngology instruments (e.g., saws, burs, blades, drills, debriders); a power switch (e.g., a foot-control unit), and pumps used for irrigation, cooling, and/or other purposes (e.g., endoscope lens cleaning). Otolaryngology power systems also include a line cord and a panel for handpiece/instrument connection; they may include irrigation and/or coolant bags and a clamp for fixation to a standard intravenous pole. The systems are used in a variety of surgical procedures performed in the ear, nose, and/or throat involving soft and hard tissue.
