Surgical Fire Prevention and Extinguishment

October 27, 2016
Thursday, 9am (PT); 10am (MT); 11am (CT); 12pm (ET)

While surgical fire incidence is very low, the consequence in the event of fire can be serious or fatal. Fortunately the annual number of surgical fires in the US has decreased, thanks in part to the ongoing vigilance of professional organizations, government agencies, and health systems to mitigate its risk. Understanding and implementing surgical fire prevention strategies may extinguish recurrence once and for all.


  • Identify common oxidizers, fuels, and ignition sources of surgical fires, and the hazards of oxygen enrichment.
  • Describe clinical recommendations on how to minimize the risk of surgical fire.
  • Discuss how to extinguish a fire on a patient or medical device.
