The same equipment, including the same monitor, insufflators

are used in laparoscopy to pump carbon dioxide gas into the abdomen of women for regulating gas pressure during the operation.
The report provides value, in millions of US dollars, volume (in units) and average prices (in US dollars) within market segments - Insufflators

Maybe because I trained in Pittsburgh, I was shocked to return to my alma mater to join the faculty and find no insufflators
! Now, 15 years later, I teach a 2 hour ear exam workshop to all of the medical students, family medicine residents, and pediatrics residents at the University of Virginia (I am still hoping to get to the emergency medicine residents).
There is much equipment and technology to be mastered, including systems for warming and cooling the patient, operation of drills, saws, cameras, videos, insufflators
, microscopes and etectrosurgical equipment, and understanding medications and chemicals.
