InstaPoll: Surgical Masks With Loops or Ties?

Published: March 20, 2018

Some say surgical masks with ear loops aren't acceptable for use in the perioperative setting because they might not provide a secure facial fit that prevents venting at the sides of the mask. Tell us in this week's InstaPoll if you prefer loops or ties.

Hopes are high that smoke evacuation one day will become the law of the land, according to the 267 respondents to last week's poll.

Will smoke evacuation ever be the law of the land?

  • yes 82%
  • no 18%
