Conmed Aer Defense Features

More than 80 different organic compounds, including a range of toxic chemical by-products, have been
identified in surgical smoke plumes. The AER DEFENSE Smoke Evacuator System from ConMed has been
designed to provide patients and OR staff with efficient protection from the harmful particles in surgical
smoke and aerosols.

Reduces the risk of infection: The AER DEFENSE

the system captures and filters surgical smoke to remove
potentially hazardous and infectious bacteria and viruses from the environment. This massively
reduces the risk of contracting infections for surgical personnel. Additionally, this system removes
noxious odors from the operating site, ensuring a more pleasant OR experience.
Quietly efficient: This system is powered by a dual-stage motor, which allows for more efficient suction
capabilities. It also results in less noise production – AER DEFENSE is 11% (7dBA) quieter than
ConMed’s previous smoke evacuator model.

Impressive functionality and efficiency: Designed to provide exceptional versatility in the OR, AER
DEFENSE offers four specialized operational modes: Automatic, Laparoscopic, Continuous and
Footswitch Activation. This allows surgical staff their choice of activation and usage. The AER
The DEFENSE system uses ULPA-graded FilterOne, which has 99.9995% efficiency at 0.1µ (micron)
particle size, providing incredibly effective filtration and cleaning. The life of these filters is calculated
by airflow, allowing for a longer filter life of 35 hours.

  • Four different modes of operation, making it the most versatile smoke evacuator on the market.
  • 11% (7 dBA) quieter than our previous model.
  • The ULPA-grade filter has 99.9995% efficiency at 0.1-micron particle size.
  • Filter life of up to 35 hours.
  • The AER DEFENSE coupled with the ConMed GoldVac Smoke Evacuation Pencil provides an exceptional combination to protect your staff and patients from the hazards of surgical smoke in the OR.


AER DEFENSE is compatible with other manufacturer’s electrosurgical units. It features an LED indicator showing the filter life for maximized efficiency. The system is a small size to fit on a cart or boom arm and includes a built-in carrying handle for easy transportation.
