  • ILSC 2007 Paper #1001 (Safe Use of Lasers in Veterinary Medicine)

    Safe Use of Lasers in Veterinary Medicine
    Authors:
    Kenneth Bartels, Oklahoma State University; Stillwater OK USA
    Thomas Fry, Cascade Veterinary Specialists; Issaquah WA USA
    Presented at ILSC 2007

    Technology in veterinary medicine, including the use of lasers, is expanding, as is the ability of animal owners to support these innovations. Since the use of lasers in the profession of veterinary medicine has grown sharply in the past 10 years, safety concerns for the patient, the veterinarian, and the technical staff are paramount. The American National Standard for Safe Use of Lasers in Health Care Facilities (ANSI Z 136.3-2005) is a document used by both state and federal compliance...

    Another Airway Fire: When Will Such Accidents Cease?
    Authors:
    Richard Hughes, High-Rez Diagnostics, Inc.; Camino CA USA
    Presented at ILSC 2007

    The information available to the author indicates that the only fatalities resulting from the use of lasers have resulted from medical laser procedures and that endotracheal tube fires occurring during laser surgery have been the most prevalent cause of death and serious injury in the hospital setting. The endotracheal tube fire case presented in this paper is the second such case for which the author has served as an expert witness. The first case was presented at ILSC-2003 and in that paper the question "When will laser-induced airway fires cease?" w...

    Filter and Mirror Design for a Micromanipulator used with a Medical Dual Wavelength Laser
    Authors:
    Wolfgang Wöllmer, University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf; Hamburg Germany
    Reinhardt Thyzel, A.R.C. Laser GmbH; Nürnberg Germany
    Presented at ILSC 2007

    One of the special properties of lasers is the emission of monochromatic radiation. Filters and mirrors have to provide high coefficients of absorption and/or reflection. Especially for eye safety filters the transient laser radiation must not exceed the MPE. Various medical laser systems on the market today include different lasers and allow a combined application with more than one wavelength.These new developments lead to new...

    Summary of Changes to the Next Edition of ANSI Z136.1
    Authors:
    Nikolay Stoev, Valkom Laser Consulting; Toronto ON Canada
    Presented at ILSC 2007

    This presentation is a summary of the changes introduced into the next edition of the ANSI Z136-200X standard compared to the current 2000 edition. It resulted from the author's effort in reviewing the drafts within the SSC-1 subcommittee and the editorial group. Revised ANSI standards currently lack sections summarizing the introduced changes, which is somewhat difficult for users of the new editions. One would have to read the whole document to identify some changes. The summary covers all normative sections including appendices and some non-normative...

    Authors:
    Nikolay Stoev, Valkom Laser Consulting; Toronto ON Canada
    Woody Strzelecki, TUV Rheinland of N.A., Inc.; Newtown CT USA
    Presented at ILSC 2007

    Laser safety testing is performed under the umbrella of the IECEE (IEC System for Conformity testing and Certification of Electrical Equipment), a branch of IEC, also known as the CB Scheme. Its members include 137 National Certification Bodies (NCBs) from 39 countries. The significant growth of the organization is reflected in the release of over 40 thousand CB certificates and test reports in the year 2005. The Committee of Testing Laboratories (CTL) is the technical branch of the IECEE. Th...

    Authors:
    Robert Weiner, Weiner Associates; Manhattan Beach CA USA
    Presented at ILSC 2007

    The IEC TC-76 committee on laser safety has recently published Edition 2 to the IEC 60825-1 laser safety standard. This paper will briefly describe the extensive amendments that are included in the new Edition: removal of LEDs from this standard; revision of the definition of human access for better consistency with real hazards; revision of measurement criteria to increase the distance used for classification of diverging beams; simplification of measurement criteria for small sources; and application of more stringent measurement criteri...
