Electrocautery, also called thermal cautery, involves passing a direct or alternating current through a resistant metal wire electrode that generates heat. The heated electrode is then passed over a living tissue for varying degrees of tissue destruction to mitigate bleeding and damage or to remove unwanted growth. It is also useful in limiting potential medical harm like infections in the absence of antibiotics.
For successful electrocautery, top-quality cauteries supplies are essential. These supplies include electrosurgical pencils, grounding pads, electrosurgical generators and other related accessories. With the right tools, the physician can be confident of having the right temperature and application when required for the detailed and intricate work at hand.
