Electrosurgery is an application of an electric current tocoagulate tissue at the surgical site. The flow streams from the generator to agadget or a functioning terminal that conveys the electric flow to the carefulsite through the patient or tissue. Then it's channeled back to the generatorusing a dispersing inactive electrode or grounding pad.

In this application, the surgeons need electrosurgical cables.

How ElectrosurgicalUnit Circuit ESU Circuit Works?

When the generator is on, then the active electrode – electrosurgical cable orelectrosurgical unit is directly plugged in. One needs to push the button. Butit can't be used if you don't get the grounding pad hooked up.

The grounding pad itself has a poly adhesive kind ofelectric go on it. While applying it to a patient is always used at fleshyparts of a patient's like; buttocks area and thighs, an upper arm, or the sideof patient. These are significant fleshy areas of the human body.

When you activate the electrode by using one of the buttonson the Bovie machine, the power source itself will come from the generator downthis wire and to a patient's tissue. It goes through a tissue of patient downto the dispersive pad or the ground pad, and it will go through the wire groundpad back to the generator itself.

This is how the circuit of the electrosurgical unit works!
