Saws, Cast, Pneumatic

Definition : Cast saws driven by pneumatic power designed to cut casts. These saws are powered instruments with a pneumatic motor, a mechanism to drive the blade, and a hose connected to the pressurized gas source. Pneumatic cast saws are usually available as handheld instruments and, less frequently, as stationary tabletop devices; oscillating or reciprocating saws are used to cut casts without damaging the patient's body. Rotary saws are not appropriate for this use. Pneumatic power saws are smaller and less noisy than electric saws but produce more debris; they are used to cut casts using dedicated plaster or fiberglass blades cast removal, creation of a hinged cast, or to open a window in the cast to view underlying tissue.
