The precise incision and hemostasis control the laser provides are especially valuable when care must be taken to watch out for and preserve delicate structures.

Comparison of the Hemodynamic Response in General Anesthesia between Patients Submitted to Skin Incision with Scalpel and CO2 Laser

Results indicate that the use of CO2 laser in surgery surpasses the conventional scalpel, by lowering the nociceptive system stimulation, decreasing the autonomic nervous system activity and stabilizing the hemodynamic clinical signs, which in turn promote reduced anesthetic consumption and thus offer greater safety to the patient.
