Fiberoptic Cable Caps, Energy Diffusion

Definition : Caps designed for covering the extreme end of a fiberoptic light cable to diffuse the intense light energy emitted by the cable tip when the cables are not in active use. These caps usually consist of an optical translucent and heat resistant plastic (e.g., Teflon, polysulfone) and metals (e.g., stainless steel) that may be temporarily attached and detached to the light cable end several times using an adapter, making the cap temperature low enough to allow manual touch without risk of burns. Energy diffusion fiberoptic cable caps are mostly used during minimum access (e.g., laparoscopic) procedures to reduce the risk of burns to patients and healthcare staff, also reducing the risk of fire when the cable contacts the surgical drapes or is placed in oxygen rich environments. Both reusable caps (which can be re-sterilized) and pre-sterilized disposable caps (intended for single-use) are available.
