HFR FAQ / What are the advantages of a 4.0MHz electrosurgery unit over lower frequency ones?

Assuming operating frequency is high enough (over 100KHz); neuro-muscular stimulation is avoided. A higher frequency of 4.0MHz provides better efficiency for the non-direct contact capacitive dispersive pad in comparison to most general surgery units which typically run around 500KHz or less and which rely on direct contact dispersive pads.
