Electrosurgical Units, Monopolar, Argon-Enhanced Coagulation
Definition : Monopolar electrosurgical units (ESU's) that are equipped with a system (typically either housed in a separate mobile cart or incorporated into the ESU generator housing) for delivery of argon gas. The electrosurgical current forms an ionized channel, or arc, within an argon gas stream that flows between the active electrode and the tissue surface. The argon-enhanced ESU can provide rapid, uniform coagulation over large bleeding surfaces such as capillary beds.
