Electro surgical unit  PURPOSE ESU are used for

Electro surgical unit PURPOSE ESU are used for surgical cutting and for controlling bleeding by causing coagulation hemostasis at the surgical site. It is high frequency diathermy involves the transference of electrical energy into heat which ,when impact to the bodily tissues, will heat the normal cell fluid, eventually through it is boiling point. What dose DIATHERMY mean?

DIA = through THERMO = temperature heat Principle ESU machine is an alternating current source that operates at radio frequency RF. A high frequency current flowing through active electrode high current concentration. Cell ruptured-fumes or evaporates. Return path through dispersive electrode low current and heat dissipates.

Patient is included in circuit. Current concentration or density depends on the size of the area through which the current flows. HF generation can be activated by a foot switch or finger switch on the surgical handle. System Components Electrosurgery Unit

Dispersive Electrode Active Electrode Active electrode RF Generator

Body Patient electrode ESU Principle.ppt..\ Effect of RF on cell When a high frequency current applied to

the tissues the tissues gets turn apart and get the following effect: 1. Thermal effect. 2. Electrolytic effect. 3. Faradic effect. Operating frequency and typical value Operating frequency of solid state surgical diathermy machine is 300 KHz to-3MHz Monopolar :CUT 0-to-350watts for load 5

COAG0-to-100 watts Bipolar : CUT 0-to-50 watts COAG 0-to-10 watts Types of ESU Spark gap generator 1924 Still in use today urology , open- heart surgery. Spark gap / vacuum-tube device use spark gap circuits to generate high frequency waveforms. It is not offer the same safety feature as solid state unites.

Recent technology Argon/argon enhanced technology. It uses a computer-controlled tissue feedback system that senses tissue impedance and automatically adjusts the current and output voltage to maintain a constant surgical effect . It is reduces the need to adjust power setting for different types of tissue. It is also gives improved performance at low power setting to reduce the risk of patient injury.

Solid state device - 1968 It is more recent and more prevalently used technology. Contain oscillator circuits and transistor-based amplifier that vary the frequency and modify the shape of the line signal to create an array of different waveforms for pure CUT,COAG, BLEEND . Highly safety.

OK!, but how can I control so accurately the temperatures in the tissues ? Modes of Electro surgery Monopolar surgery Bipolar surgery
