bipolar electrode

bipolar electrode

[bī′pō·lər i′lek‚trōd]
(electricity)
Electrode, without metallic connection with the current supply, one face of which acts as anode surface and the opposite face as a cathode surface when an electric current is passed through a cell.

Thus, we used an alternative approach with a bipolar electrode probe, which required higher electrical charges during stimulation.
As is known, the surface of the phase separation "liquid--gas" in the plasmochemical reactor acts as a bipolar electrode, the outer part of which serves as a cathode, and the inner part of the surface layer of the liquid phase is an anode.
Stimulation parameters were set at pulse widths of 30 microseconds and frequency of 10 kHz with intensity set between 1.5 and 2.5 mA for bilateral stimulation (both devices activated at the same time) with bipolar electrode selection, closest to the dorsal root ganglion.
In all experiments, the stimulators were adjusted to a pulse width of 60 [micro]sec with the negative pulse current of -200 [micro]A applied to the stimulating unipolar electrode or to the proximal tip of the bipolar electrode. The pulse repetition frequency was 130 Hz.

Various bipolar electrode placements are evaluated based on both simulated and measured signals to determine the influence of scale and direction on measurement quality for all signals of interest.
Longitudinal variations of characteristics frequencies of skeletal muscle fiber potentials detected by a bipolar electrode or multielectrode.
With the bipolar electrode arrangement, the IZ is of particular concern because the resulting EMG signal reflects the difference signal between the two recording electrodes (12).
The common protocols included bilateral and bipolar electrode arrangements.
In separate experiments, right and left mediastinal nerves were identified and stimulated using a hand held bipolar electrode probe, while marking the sites of successful stimulation.
One physician who attended the meeting said that he had had success in stopping uterine hemorrhaging in similar cases by using the NovaSure system, which ablates the uterus via a bipolar electrode.
