Introduction to Electrosurgery

Intro to electrosurgery The use of electrical energy to control bleeding during surgical procedures has been of benefit to patients for the last century. The high frequency energy used by surgeons today can be used to coagulate bleeding vessels, cut or resect tissues, seal structures and make skin incisions. This 0.5 CE course is a basic introduction to electrosurgery in the operating room and how to safely use this common technology.

Principles of Electrosurgery

Principles of Electrosurgery Having an understanding of the principles of electricity is a strong foundation for “best practices” in electrosurgical patient care. Electrosurgical equipment and accessories facilitate the passage of high frequency, oscillating electric currents through tissue between two electrodes to fulgurate, desiccate or cut tissue. Although the scientific application of electricity and the technologies have come a long way in regards to development and safety, hazards still exist for the surgical patient and OR team.
