• conductors
  • 3. The thermal cautery system of claim 1 wherein said pair of electrical conductors have a finite resistance, and wherein said power supply includes a compensating circuit adjusting the voltage that said power supply places across said conductors to compensate for the voltage drop in said conductors caused by current flowing through the resistance of said conductors. (google.com.au)
  • It is thus a feature of this invention that the proper sized instruments may be selected for the sized cone and placed therein to control bleeding by pressure, after which selected areas may he cauterized by touching the exposed end of each of the conductors with a fine cautery tip using a dessicating current.

  • stop
  • Actual cautery refers to the metal device, generally heated to a dull red glow, that a physician applies to produce blisters, to stop bleeding of a blood vessel, and for other similar purposes. (wikipedia.org)
  • What CPT code would you use for the cauterization of a superficial varicose vein that would not stop bleeding. (aapc.com)
  • blood
  • This slower process allows the tongue to heal as it is being split, negating the need for stitches or cauterization to control bleeding as blood loss is limited. (wikipedia.org)
  • system
  • Preferably, the cautery dissector includes a suction system having a suction opening disposed adjacent to the cautery blade. (google.com)
  • 2. The thermal cautery system of claim 1, further including a resistor connected in series between said power supply and said diode to limit the current through said diode to substantially the ratio of the difference between said output voltage and the reverse breakdown voltage of said diode to the resistance of said resistor. (google.com.au)
  • area
  • At the base of the cone the wires emerge and can be individually contacted by a current conducting element for selectively engaging any individual conducting wire for selective cauterization of a desired area. (google.com)
  • options
  • If cautery is not desired or warranted other options are implemented depending on whether the bleed is originating at the front or back of the nose. (livestrong.com)
