Kalstein Surgical Electrosurgical Scalpels Specifications & Comparison

Surgical electrosurgical scalpels represent a significant advance in equipment for surgical procedures. They can generate electric current capable of cutting and coagulation, which is fundamental in the precision and effectiveness of the operations. Three models will be analyzed below: YR02144, composed of the YR02145 // YR02146 series and the YR02147 model.

Model YR02144: Efficiency and Power

This model is an excellent choice for high demands, with a wide range of modes and powers, offering several cutting and coagulation options. In monopolar mode, it offers a power of up to 400 watts for pure cutting, and in coagulation up to 120 watts, in bipolar mode the power goes up to 70 watts for either cutting or coagulation, this wide range of power output ensures adequate performance for different surgical needs. https://www.kalstein.nl/product/electrosurgical-generators-yr02144/

The electrosurgical scalpel combines versatility and safety, for all general electrosurgical procedures such as cutting and coagulation in clinics, offices and emergency rooms. This YR unit offers a maximum power of 400 watts. Seven monopolar and three bipolar outputs are available.

YR02145 Series // YR02146 Series: Flexibility and Versatility

These models also offer multiple mode and power options, although with lower maximum power (350 watts, 150 watts respectively) than the YR02144 model, they are designed for situations where less cutting or coagulation power is required, while maintaining their efficiency. In addition, both models have the uniqueness of having chromatic indications (gray and white) that allow to quickly identify the correspondence between power and technical specifications. https://www.kalstein.nl/product/electrosurgical-generators-yr02145-yr02146/

YR is applicable in various surgeries such as general surgery, dermatology, plastic surgery, endoscopy, vascular surgery, cardiac/thoracic surgery, minimally invasive surgery, neurosurgery and ophthalmology.

Model YR02147: Advanced Technology

This model stands out for being the only one that incorporates a high efficiency smoke extraction system, ranging from 30 to 100L/min, in 8 different intensities, its internal and external high efficiency filters guarantee an optimal environment for the operators. As for cutting and coagulation specifications, this model operates with 512 KHz frequency and offers various waveforms to meet different surgical needs. https://www.kalstein.nl/product/electrosurgical-generators-yr02147/

The YR electrosurgical scalpel series is a reliable electrosurgical unit for the loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) in gynecology. With a maximum isolated output of up to 150 watts, automatic control functions and current compensation, it can perform high-precision cutting and coagulation with less risk of thermal damage.

Model Comparison

It is important to note that, although each surgical electrosurgical scalpel model has its own technical peculiarities, they are all designed to operate in a specific voltage range and comply with EN 60601-1 and 60601-2-2 safety standards. Therefore, the choice between models will be based on the specific needs of the surgical procedure to be performed, taking into account differences in power and added features such as the smoke extraction system of the YR02147 model.

In summary, Kalsteinโ€™s surgical electrosurgical scalpels offer a wide range of options to meet the needs of any surgical situation, always guaranteeing maximum power, efficiency and safety.
