As a veterinary professional, you work in a specialized field with specialized equipment.  When it comes to outfitting your hospital or operating room with the tools of the trade, there are some essentials.  Here's a look at a few of the basic tools any operating room utilizing the latest electrosurgical techniques should have on hand.

Already proven as a stellar addition to surgical procedures everywhere, the Bovie Aaron cautery devices have exceptional applications in a veterinary practice, as well.  While electrosurgery has virtually replaced traditional scalpels for a number of common medical procedures, cautery may not be far behind.  With the combination of simple battery operated cautery and the more complex electrosurgery units, the veterinary applications of Bovie Aaron devices cover the gamut from simple topical treatments to complex internal surgeries.

When it comes to planning the best course of action involving a patient, it is important to consider not only all the options, but the best ones suited to the operation or treatment being performed.  As with any procedure, some of the greatest concerns revolve around the loss of blood and possibility of infection.  These are two primary reasons to implement and utilize electrosurgical devices.

It has been reported that at least 80% of all surgical procedures performed involve electrosurgery units (ESUs). The Bovie Electrosurgery Generator is used to cut or coagulate tissue using electrical current at varying voltages and currents. As with any invasive procedure, proper training in safety methods is mandatory for avoiding injuries to either the patients or the surgical team.

At Bovie Medical, we stay on the very edge of breakthroughs in medical technology.  There is no better example of this than the J-Plasma device, which utilizes a new, innovative method to create a cutting plasma stream allowing surgeons quick, precise excision and coagulation with only a minimum of electricity to the surgical site.  What this means for surgeons is a new surgical tool using an inert gas plasma and cutting blade, which creates negligible damage to the surrounding tissue and no need for a return electrode.

The first use of the electrosurgical generator in the operating room happened on October 1, 1926 at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts with a device invented by Dr. William Bovie and used by Dr. Harvey W. Cushing.  Eighty-plus years later, the field of electrosurgery continues to improve based on this early development.  While widely accepted today, the electrosurgery application initially had a negative reputation in relation to the long standing current traditions of the medical profession.

The same principles that apply to any electrosurgery procedure apply to electrosurgery for dermatology.  The electrosurgical procedure involves using a special device, often simply called a “Bovie” after the man who invented it.  The device cuts, desiccates (dries the area), coagulates (forms blood clots) and fulgurates (destroys and removes) tissue.
