'Diatherm'y is a surgical technique in which the flow of electricity is used generate heat, which is then used for clinical purposes such as to cut tissue or seal bleeding vessels.
Diathermy works by passing normal electrical current through the diathermy machine and converting it into a high frequency alternating current (HFAC), which produces the heat.
There are two basic types of diathermy:
- Monopolar diathermy works by producing the electric current from an active electrode into the patient's body tissues and then returned back to the diathermy machine through another electrode, the patient return pad.(Paitent return pads are available through Beehive Solutions, such as the ERBE Nessy Omega)
- Bipolar diathermy works by producing the electric current from the diathermy machine down one prong of a bipolar forcep and through the patient's tissue that has been placed in between both diathermy forceps prongs, and returned to the diathermy machine through the second prong. Bipolar diathermy does not require a dispersive electrode (patient return pad)
