HFR FAQ / Is electrosurgery safe around pregnant patients or veterinary physicians?

Yes. Safety is enhanced with isolated output units since therapeutic current does not diffuse through the body into the table; rather, it is significantly constrained to the dispersive pad. Judicious placement of the dispersive pad will prevent electrosurgical therapeutic current from passing through the womb. Do avoid draping the cables over the patient, especially the abdomen, for the greatest safety.
