Electrosurgical units (ESU) for cutting and coagulating, are hazardous. An ESU that isn’t properly performing or set up with the correct flow and return of high frequency current, can cause extensive damage, ranging from burning a patient to starting a fire when a spark ignites flammable anesthetics, germicides or fat solvents.
When working with an ESU, it is necessary to implement rigorous safety procedures. Personnel need to verify the type of anesthetic being used, inspect patient leads, ensure coagulating tips are free of carbon and tissues, test for electrical continuity, and follow precautionary practices. ESUs should regularly be tested with an electrosurgical analyzer, ensuring they comply with global standards.
