Claim of US Patent No. 10,512,191

1. A module for housing unrelated electronic and electromechanical surgical equipment and for managing waste heat during surgery, the module comprising:a lower section configured to house unrelated waste heat-producing electronic and electromechanical surgical equipment;
a tower-like upper section located on top of the lower section;
a cowling that substantially confines waste heat generated by the unrelated waste heat-producing electronic and electromechanical surgical equipment; and
an air inlet vent configured to allow air to enter and cool the unrelated waste heat-producing electronic and electromechanical equipment storable in the lower section,
wherein the tower-like upper section serves as a chimney allowing a convection current of waste heat to rise within the tower-like upper section and be discharged from outlet vents located near the top of the tower-like upper section.
