JUNE Medical Launches eVeck Colposcopy Plume Evacuation Kit

JUNE Medical has announced the launch of the eVeck Colposcopy Plume Evacuation Kit for the safe and efficient removal of surgical plume. Surgical plume is an unavoidable result of interventional procedures where diathermy, electrosurgery, laser and ultrasonic devices cut into tissue. It can release an unpleasant odour but, more importantly, can contain toxic, infectious or carcinogenic material – such as hydrogen peroxide gas, HPV or SARS-CoV-2 – that could be hazardous to theatre staff or indeed the patient. As a result, exposure to surgical plume has been linked to eye, nose and throat irritation, nausea, headaches, coughs, nasal congestion, asthma, and asthma-like symptoms.

The single-use eVeck Colposcopy Plume Kit comes ready assembled, with an integrated HEPA pre-filter, a flexi connector that fits assorted speculum models, and tubing that links to a plume evacuation system and is reinforced to prevent crushing and kinking. Renowned electro surgery consultant Steve Veck has worked on the project, advising medical device specialist Mosaic Surgical. He said: “Surgical plume is an inevitable consequence of procedures that use electrosurgical techniques, and there is clear evidence showing the dangers it presents to personnel. Despite this, the most efficient removal methods are not mandatory in every territory, or for every case. The eVeck eliminates this issue by attaching directly to the speculum, positioning it close to the surgical site to clear all the damaging materials before staff and patients can be exposed to them.”

Angela Spang, CEO of JUNE Medical, commented: “We are delighted to be able to offer this simple but vital solution that can prevent surgical teams from being exposed to the hazards of surgical plume. We hope that more widespread use of the eVeck Kit will have a significant long-term effect on improving the health of healthcare professionals.”
