The circuit is composed of the generator, active electrode, patient and patient return electrode. Pathways to ground areFile Size: 1MB.

Mark E. Bruley, in Complications in Head and Neck Surgery (Second Edition), Electrosurgery. Electrosurgery is a widely used surgical technology that employs a high-frequency electric current passing through tissue to cut or cauterize that tissue.

ESUs are the most common ignition source in surgical fires. 5, 9 By its very nature, electrosurgery can produce a high-temperature electric arc. Electrosurgery is used in dermatological procedures to stop bleeding (haemostasis) or to destroy abnormal skin growths. In electrosurgery, high-frequency, alternating electric current at various voltages ( to 10, V) is passed through the skin to generate heat.

It requires a power supply and a handpiece with one or more electrodes. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Pearce, John A., Electrosurgery.

Since the electrosurgery procedure is somewhat more complex than electrocautery, a bit of confusion over how it is used persists, even after the distinction between the two is understood.

There are two principle methods of employing. Electrosurgery has been one of the principle procedures in operative endoscopy for some twenty years. However, partly due to fears about complications, particulary burns, and partly through the emergence of laser surgery, these techniques have been going through a phase of : Hardcover.

Electrosurgery is the preferred choice by many physicians. Wherever this type of concentrated light is applied to tissue, shrinkage is always a concern.

This is especially critical in ophthalmic procedures. Once again, no magic - technique is as important as the science used to achieve the desired results. Electrosurgery is a surgical method that uses electrical currents to make incisions and to cut through tissue.

Due to the high heat used when making these cuts, blood vessels are cauterized during the process, which limits the amount of blood lost in the procedure.

Electrosurgery: History, Principles, and Current and Future Uses Mosby-Y ear Book; It is crucial to understand the basics of electrosurgery to deliver safe and effective. Electrosurgery refers to the cutting and coagulation of tissue using high-frequency electrical current [ 1 ].

Physicians using this technique must be knowledgeable about prevention and management of potential complications of electrosurgical procedures. In addition, they should understand the mechanism of action and how to troubleshoot equipment.

Electrosurgery is used routinely in eye surgery to cut, coagulate, dissect, fulgurate, ablate and shrink tissue. High frequency ( kilohertz to 5 megahertz), alternating electric current at various voltages (–10, Volts) is passed through tissue to generate heat.

An electrosurgical unit (ESU) consists of a generator and a handpiece Cited by: 2. Principles of Electrosurgery. Often “electrocautery” is used to describe electrosurgery. This is incorrect. Electrocautery refers to direct current (electrons flowing in one direction), whereas electrosurgery uses alternating current (Figure 1).

Modern day electrosurgery is the utilization of alternating current at radiofrequency levels. Our award-winning electrosurgery units have been number one in tissue management for decades.
