Closed petition " Mandatory for all hospital theatres to evacuate diathermy tissue smoke plume"

In 2007, smoking was banned in the UK. In operating theatres we are still '"smoking" because some consultants are reluctant to use this technology .This continues to put perioperative staff and patients at risk of breathing in smoke which contains many harmful compounds including hydrogen cyanide.
