Utah Medical’s Epitome Scalpel Electrodes are designed to improve electrosurgical results by significantly reducing thermal tissue injury compared to standard blade tips.
The Epitome Scalpel Electrodes incorporate Peripheral Plasma Blade (P2B) technology.
P2B is a fine wire element at the edge of a non-conductive ceramic core. This focused geometry creates a spark plasma at the blade edge, resulting in clean tissue dissection with minimal thermal injury.
The Epitome Scalpel Electrodes' ceramic blades with heat-resistant and non-conductive properties ensure that electrical energy will not pass through the blades to any tissue which might inadvertently come into contact with the blades.
As a result, less electrical power is required to perform the desired cut, thermal damage in the wound is minimised, and patient recovery times may be improved. With Epitome Scalpel Electrodes, hemostasis is controlled through the selection of loop wire diameter and/or by the mode setting on your electrosurgical generator.
