To meet the special needs and problems that can arise as a result of the increased use of electrosurgery in laparoscopic procedures, Aaron's IDS-300 ESU offers a CutII mode that reduces the maximum peak-to-peak voltage, which helps reduce the risk of capacitative coupling.
current diversion, which may be caused by insulation defects, direct coupling to another conductive device, or capacitative coupling, a process that can occur through adjacent instruments that are not in contact or even those that are coated with intact insulation (TABLE, page S11).
