An electrosurgery unit or electrosurgical unit is a medical device that transmits energy in a controlled manner to living tissue for surgical purposes in order to cut, coagulate, fulgurate, and desiccate tissues, depending on the parameters established by the medical operator
The electrosurgical or electrosurgical unit, also called an electrosurgical unit, is a medical device that uses electrical phenomena to produce heat; its objective is to coagulate, glow, desiccate or cut tissues, depending on the established parameters. The production of heat is achieved through the passage of an oscillatory electric current, concentrated in a small area. The smaller the space in which the current flows, the higher the energy density at this point, resulting in higher and higher temperatures.
The electrosurgical unit is a medical equipment capable of transforming electrical energy into heat to cut or coagulate tissues and cauterize them simultaneously, using currents that develop at high frequencies usually above 200,000 Hz. In other words, this equipment is responsible for generating high-frequency alternating current from low-frequency electrical currents, with the aim of achieving a desired thermal effect on a biological tissue.
The electroscalpel is a device that is present in approximately 80% of surgical processes, through electrical phenomena it is able to coagulate, flare, cut tissues according to established parameters, this instrument produces heat through an oscillatory electric current, concentrated in a small area; the current it uses is taken from the electrical network and transformed into direct current.
Phototherapy is a therapeutic technique used in medicine to treat skin diseases such as psoriasis and vitiligo, and neonatal hyperbilirubinemia clinical pictures where light is used because of its anti-inflammatory capacity or to contribute to reduce serum bilirubin levels respectively.
Phototherapy or light therapy is the reference treatment for hyperbilirubinemia in babies, known as neonatal hyperbilirubinemia, for which fluorescent white light is frequently used, although blue light can also be used, with a wavelength of 425 to 475 nm, being this one more effective for cases of intensive phototherapy.
Phototherapy is a therapeutic measure in which light is used, specifically ultraviolet light (UV) because UV radiation has anti-inflammatory action, for the treatment of dermatological inflammatory and neoplastic skin diseases. The use of phototherapy dates from the early twentieth century and from there have emerged several modalities being the commonly used UVA therapy (340-400 nm), PUVA (Psoraleno + UVA), broadband UVB (280-320 nm) and the most recent the narrow band UVB (311 nm).
An infant bilirubin phototherapy unit is medical equipment generally made up of 4 blue light tubes and 2 white light tubes, and a cover or shield that protects the newborn in case of tube breakage and ultraviolet light. The blue ones are placed in the center and the white ones on the sides. These phototherapy lamps are fluorescent and LED type bulbs used for neonatal treatment.
Phototherapy or light therapy is a medical technique used to treat neonatal hyperbilirubinemia, which causes neonatal jaundice, a clinical condition characterized by yellowing of the skin and mucosa of newborns, due to excess bilirubin in blood, this jaundice may be present at birth or appear at any time neonatal, depending on its etiology. It commonly starts in the facial area and as blood bilirubin levels increase it spreads to the abdomen and then to the feet.
Phototherapy is a therapeutic measure used in specialties of medicine such as pediatrics and neonatology to treat neonatal hyperbilirubinemia. It is a technique based on the use of electromagnetic radiation (light) to decrease the values of bilirubin in blood, using the properties of light. The light rays emitted by phototherapy lamps result in the transformation of bilirubin into water-soluble photoisomers which are then more easily excreted in feces and urine, without the need to conjugate in the liver, thus decreasing blood bilirubin values.
