Having an understanding of the principles of electricity is a strong foundation for "best practices" in electrosurgical patient care.

It is imperative that all surgical team members know the principles involved, the technology at hand and the safety practices necessary for optimal usage of electrosurgery.

Electrosurgery units 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.

There are two types of electrosurgical generators:

  • Ground Referenced Generators (typically older, outdated units)
  • Isolated Generators (today's state-of-art technology)

Mega Power Generator

Active Electrode

The active electrode delivers the RF current from the generator to the surgical site.

ACE Blade Pencil

Return Electrode

The patient return pad or electrode for monopoly electrosurgery functions as the pathway the current takes back to the generator.
