Welcome to McGan Technology
...providing electrosurgical test equipment, preventing burns.
McGan Technology's electrosurgical test equipment. may prevent inadvertent burns and external skin injury which occur during electrosurgical procedures when the electrosurgical instruments insulation has defects causing electrosurgical instrument insulation failure. Insulation failure happens over time, through normal surgical use or being in close proximity to sharp instruments or rubbing against an abrasive surface. The insulation failure provides an alternate pathway for the current used in the operation to pass to areas that are unintended, commonly referred to as unintended tissue burns. Using an electrosurgical test equipment maintenance program can greatly reduce the number of these type of burns and shocks to the surgeon during electrosurgical procedures.
Electrosurgical Test Equipment Includes:
MicroMed MM-5kV Electrosurgical Failure Detector
with a 0 to 5kV fully adjustable voltage range, is a compact, hand held, battery operated unit that is used to detect and locate defects such as pinholes, insulation cracks and bare spots in protective coatings applied over conductive instrument’s surfaces.
MicroMed PD-8K Electrosurgical Insulation Defect Detector
with a 0 to 8kV fully adjustable voltage range, is a compact, hand held, rechargeable battery operated unit that is used to detect and locate defects such as pinholes, cracks and bare spots in protective coatings applied over conductive instrument’s surfaces.
Electrosurgical Instrument Demagnetizer Include:
MicroMed Demag 2000
Magnetized surgical instruments can cause some major issues during a surgical operation for example if a needle holder is magnetized it may repel the needle or attract it making it difficult to work with. Some instruments may become magnetized through normal handling, cleaning, polishing or being in close contact with a magnetic field or a magnet. The easiest way to eliminate these types of issues is to use a demagnetizer.
