This medical laser safety awareness course is for those who are new to the field. At the end of the course you will understand basic laser science and be able to identify the components of commonly used medical lasers and their delivery systems.
This program is divided into a Physics Module and a Medical Devices Module. The Physics Module introduces students to the properties and physics of laser light. The Medical Devices Module focuses how laser light interacts with different absorbers in tissue with a variety of different medical lasers and delivery systems. It also looks at the key specialties utilizing this technology.
This medical laser safety course is an annual refresher that covers the basic laser science as the foundation for staff, Laser Operators, Laser Users and/or Laser Safety Officers. It also reviews the direct and reflected beam hazards to the eyes and skin, as well as the appropriate selection of laser safety eyewear for patients and staff.
Students must pass the Basic Medical Laser Safety course before taking this refresher.
This course will introduce you to the properties of laser light along with the discussion of beam hazards and associated safety control measures.
This course is broken down into five sections: “Physics”, “Medical Devices”, “Beam Hazards”, “Non-Beam Hazards“, and “The Laser Safety Program”.
The “Physics“ section will introduce you to the properties and physics of laser light. The “Medical Devices” section will discuss how this unique form of light interacts with different absorbers in tissue along with a variety of different medical lasers, delivery systems and the key specialties utilizing this technology. The third and fourth sections address beam and non-beam hazards associated with lasers. The last section will address the process of establishing Laser Safety Policies and Procedures, which will become the baseline for developing a clinically relevant Laser Safety Program.
