New Cautery Machine for PGH-OR

No. This is not an iPod docking station!

This is CONMED System 2450, an electrosurgical generator also known as a cautery machine.

Don’t be deceived by what you see on the outside for this simple looking gadget is actually powerful and sophisticated and it can save lives.

Cautery machines like this model are used by surgeons to cauterize or burn off a soft tissue or close off a blood vessel in order to manage or stop heavy bleeding. This is especially useful in cases involving amputation.

Now, PGH surgeons operating on patients wouldn’t have to worry too much about their patients bleeding during surgery with this donation from the PGH Medical Foundation.

The CONMED System 2450 offers Dynamic Response technology in easy to use format delivering optimal clinical effects by continuous voltage and current synchronization. Surgeons can choose from six modes or settings – pure or blend cut, standard or spray coag, and micro or macro bipolar.

This Php 600,000.00 state-of-the-art medical equipment is ideal for general surgery and specialty surgeries not requiring more advance modes.

With this donation, the hospital’s shortfall goes down from 5 to 4.
