Phaco Fundamentals Part 6: Adjusting Fluidic Parameters Intra-Op

We must learn to adjust phaco fluidic parameters during surgery. This helps to tailor the surgery to the specific eye and situation. It will also improve safety and efficiency. We will learn how to adjust the anterior chamber depth (avoiding too shallow or too deep), limit the fluidic surge that can happen in the post-occlusion state, and increase holding power and followability during nucleus removal.

  1. Thanks for the good teaching.
    I have one question.
    In the last lecture, you said that inflow must be greater than outflow.
    If I raise aspiration or vacuum like in this lecture, shouldn’t I also raise the corresponding infusion?
