Surgeons Today Prefer Electronic Scalpels That Use Reed Relays In Their Electrosurgical Generators

Introduction

Approximately 95% of new, surgically equipped operating rooms use electronic scalpels. These electronic scalpels cut and instantly cauterize the area stopping any bleeding. This greatly helps doctors focus on the job at hand, while not having the area of surgical interest being obliterated with blood.  However, to perform this operation electronically requires the use of high voltage, high current and a relatively high operating frequency. This immediately brings the added concern of electric shock to the patients, nurses and doctors. So a key element to successful electronic scalpels is high reliability and safety. Medical equipment designers have chosen Standex-Meder’s reed relays to accomplish both.
