Active Electrode Monitoring System to Eradicate Surgical Burns
By MedTech Outlook | Friday, January 18, 2019
Surgical complications are high in this era. Most people have suffered due to surgical issues. Medical device companies have been thriving in order to put a full stop to surgical complications. In order to make medical complications lesser, many companies have invented several instruments.
Encision is the company that helps in reducing medical complications with different principles. Almost half of the surgeries taking place in a day involve laparoscopic techniques. The main aim of Encision is to provide a safer laparoscopic surgery to the patients that require the same. Laparoscopic surgeries are prone to insulation failure and capacitive coupling. It may become a vital reason for patient burns.
During laparoscopic surgery, electric current passes through a patient’s body. As the instrument is not electrically shielded, it does not control the amount of electricity passing through the body. As a result, the amount of electricity passing into the instrument passes through the patient’s body too. Surgery with complicated instruments leaves stray burns on the patients’ skin. The stray energy burns by surgical instruments cause the death of one to two patients every day.
According to an FDA research, experts found that a patient’s body was burnt due to the capacitive coupling effect on his body. The research also stated that around every 90 minutes, there is a death due to the capacitive coupling of surgical instruments. In order to put an end to this issue, Encision invented Active Electrode Monitoring (AEM) technology. Recently, the company has also successfully completed the private placement of around 875,000 shares. The private placement was made to CMED partners LLLP. Encision always delivers instruments that bring minimal burns to the patients. The company’s manufactured products mainly focus on the patients’ comfort and well-being. Along with AEM technology, many patients have been benefited with fewer burns using the laparoscopy or through any other surgical treatments. In order to improve clinical effectiveness and patient security, Encision has been striving to fix all the hurdles to achieving errorless and harmless surgeries hereafter.
The company has pioneered the development and deployment of the AEM technology. Encision’s technological innovations have paved the way for harmless surgeries that would save millions of lives from around the world.
