That means that every clinique will need to provide a smoke evacuator for their doctors or else the clinic owner will end up paying like the Hardy’s abestos mesothelioma problems.
from memory IN Oz one gynaecologist died from pulmonary HPV warts !
overseas a few were badly affected
(Laryngeal papillomatosis with human papillomavirus DNA contracted by a laser surgeon”, P. Hailmo and O.Naess, Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol (1991) 248 : 425-427 )
from memory one dermolog die from cancer at 50ish
One clinic i work at has smoke vents and smoke avacutor
the other you just have to hold your breath !!!! till you nearly pass out then gasping the toxic plume in again at the end of the hold !!!!!!!!
the other alternative is not use serial and curretage and cautery instead but use 30203 base on pathology done by some one else 6-12 months ago and hope that medicare don’t catch you
or do a pseudo 30196
or 30197 realy realy realy quickly ( 1 second each ) then youse will smoke less and the pt die !
personally I have done less than TEN 30197s during my life tiime despite working in a very high risk clinic. May be i should do a 30196 really realy slowly then claim 30197 ?
or just sticth up the patient and wrap them up like mummies
