Electrocauterization smoke consists of 95% water and 5% toxic and mutagenic. It is an operating room
hazards because it causes health problems for intraoperative teams including cancer, respiratory
disorders, hypoxia, cardiovascular disorders, anemia, leukemia, and transition of hepatitis, HIV and
HPV. Intraoperative team should be aware of the potential hazards of electrosurgery and take it
seriously. The purpose of the present study was to determine intraoperative teamchr('39') awareness of
electrocauterization smoke hazards in Allame Bohlool Gonabadi hospital. Present descriptive cross-
sectional study evaluated awareness of intraoperative team in Allame Bohlool Gonabadi hospital in
2019 by census method. After data collecting by a questionnaire, obtained data were analyzed by SPSS
software, Kruskal-Wallis and Mann-Whitney tests. Finally, mean score of participant awareness of
surgical smoke hazards was calculated and evaluated relationship between awareness level with
gender, level of education and work experience. The significant level was P≤0.05. This research
demonstrated that there was no notable difference between awareness and gender, level of education
and work experience (p=0.203, p=0.591, p=0.286; respectively). Also, mean score of awareness of
electrocauterization smoke hazards was 6.8± 0.14; such that 87% of them had poor awareness. The
lowest rate of awareness was linked to women (45%), individuals with bachelor’s degree (82.85%),
and work experience of 0-10 years (73.57%). Given that the awareness of intraoperative team in
Allame Bohlool Gonabadi hospital is poor; holding workshops or pamphlets seems necessary
