Surgical plume is a hazardous byproduct of electrosurgery and is typically captured using large, cumbersome smoke evacuation systems. The team has developed a hand-held, battery powered plume evacuation device that eliminates the trip and entanglement hazards associated with traditional plume capture tubing, leading the way for mobility and safety improvements in the operating room.
