Section 2: Safety precautions and warnings

Conmed Hyfrecator 2000 is prohibited to be used on the patients with implants such as metal pins, metal joints, and so on. Before using the product, you are suggested to check with the attending physician for the medical history of the patient. It is really dangerous to use this product on patients with cardiac pacemakers. There is a possibility of the high frequency energy of this product to interfere with the action of the pacemaker. In order to ensure the safety of the patient, precautions are needed. That’s why the manufacturer of the pacemaker should consult to get the advice before using it on the patient with a pacemaker. Remember that these precautions also apply to clinical personnel that have cardiac pacemakers.

Make sure to never perform the electrosurgery in the presence of anesthetics that can be flamed easily. Apart from that, it should never be performed in the presence of flammable prep solutions or drapes, oxidizing gases, including Nitrous Oxide (N20) or in environments that are full of oxygen. In electrosurgery, there is a risk of igniting flammable gases or the other materials. Apparently, it is unlikely to be eliminated by device design. In order to restrict the materials and the substances that are able to be flamed from the electrosurgical site, whether they are there in the form of an anesthetic, life support, skin preparation agent, or are produced naturally by the processes within the body cavities, or originate in the surgical drapes, tracheal tubes, or other materials, you will have to take the precautions. It is possible for the pooling of flammable solutions in the boxy depressions to happen, such as the umbilicus and in body cavities, such as the vagina. It is a must for any excess fluid that gathered in these areas to be gotten rid before using the equipment. Please pay extra attention to the danger of ignition of endogenous gases. It is possible for the cotton, wool, gauze, or some other materials to be ignited by sparks produced in the normal use of the Hyfrecator 2000 when saturated with oxygen. To prevent the alternate site burns or potential shock from happening, the best thing that you can do is to eliminate each metal object from the treatment area before using this product. Using it in the proximity of the likes of jewelry, eyeglasses, digital watches, portable radios, pocket calculators, hearing aids, and so on is not recommended. Besides, it is also not recommended to use monopolar electrosurgery on small appendages or the other parts of the body that have a relatively small cross sectional area, including in the circumcision or finger surgery. The reason why it is not encouraged is because it is able to cause thrombosis and other unintended injury to tissue proximal to the surgical site. The use of bipolar techniques is indicated by something known as IEC 60601-2-2 (3rd Edition) to be desirable for use in those cases so that the unwanted coagulation can be avoided. Please bear in mind that AAMI Standard HF18-1992 is currently against both monopolar and bipolar electrosurgery for circumcisions. It is possible that the tops of the accessories that just got activated to be hot enough to burn the patient or to ignite material that is able to be flamed. It is a must for the temporarily active electrodes that are not used to be stored in the holder on the Hyfrecator 2000. As an alternative, it can also be stored in an electrically insulated, flame resistant container.
