Aaron Electrosurgical Generator
Aaron 2250 Summary The Aaron 2250 is a multipurpose electrosurgical generator for use in the modern operating room and surgi-center. It features both monopolar and bipolar functions to satisfy all of your surgical demands with safety, flexibility, reliability, and convenience. Ten Blend Settings You don t have to settle for one or two blend modes anymore. With the Aaron 2250 you have ten different blend settings plus cut, all with 200 watts maximum power output for the most demanding procedures. Two Levels of Coagulation It also has two levels of coagulation: Coagulation (120 watts maximum power) and Fulguration (80 watts maximum power), plus Bipolar (80 watts maximum power). Digital Power Control In addition, the Aaron 2250 delivers consistent, repeatable power into varying load impedances, with BovieFDFS (Fast Digital Feedback System), thereby greatly reducing the need for changing the power setting to obtain the desired surgical effect. Why 200 Watts instead of 300? Bovie s major goal in designing the Aaron 2250 was to deliver the absolute highest level of safety and quality, but not waste money on features you rarely use. One major area of savings can be found in the output power of 200 watts. Nearly every hospital specification on an electrosurgical generator calls for 300 watts of power. Have you ever asked yourself why you need 300 watts at all stations when it is used so infrequently? We did. It results in spending a few thousand dollars more per unit for a feature that just is not used. For that matter, how often do you use over 120 watts of power? By calling for the Aaron 2250 in most of the surgical suites, you can save a significant amount of money. Ten Cutting Blend Modes You don t have to settle for one or two blend modes anymore. With Bovie digital technology, you can choose from ten different blend settings. These are clearly indicated by the LED blend indicator bar conveniently located adjacent to the blend button controls. When no LED is lit, the Aaron 2250 delivers pure cutting power. As the up button is pushed the bar begins to illuminate. As the illumination advances from the bottom to the top the degree of hemostasis will increase and cutting speed may decrease. The Aaron 2250 remembers its last used settings; so when you turn the unit on, it performs a safety system check and automatically powers up to the last activated settings. For your convenience, the power output of the Aaron 2250 is calibrated in watts with large, illuminated digital displays. Coagulation Modes The Aaron 2250 offers two levels of coagulation: Coagulation and Fulguration. Coagulation (pinpoint) provides precise control of bleeding in localized areas. Fulguration (spray) provides greater control of bleeding in highly vascular tissues over broad surface areas. Designed for Safety Electrosurgical safety is a combination of good equipment design and safe surgical practices. The Aaron 2250, as part of this combination, represents state-of-the-art design using the latest digital components. Bovie incorporated automatic safety systems into the Aaron 2250 like self-test circuits, audible tones, discreet outputs, and isolated output circuitry. BovieNEM means safety is digitally designed inside. The FCFS (first come first served) discrete output design of the Aaron 2250 enhances safety by allowing only one output to be activated at any given time. This feature assures that only the device you first activate will be an active device. Secondary commands will not override the first command. As an example: while the monopolar foot controlled output is activated, all handswitching is inactive, as well as the bipolar footswitch capability. For additional safety, this unit has totally separate bipolar controls, discrete output, dispersive electrode fault alarms in both sensing and non-sensing modes, and is designed with an isolated RF output. With the combination of isolated power output, its patented BovieNEM , Bovie FCFS technology, and the constant digital monitoring of all functions, the Aaron 2250 is one of the safest electrosurgical systems available. The doctor s responsibility is simply to follow safe electrosurgical practices to insure his safety and the safety of the O.R. staff and patient. Digital Error Detection Digital error detection means unsurpassed safety for the surgeon, O.R. staff, and patient. The Aaron 2250 constantly monitors every aspect of the Aaron 2250 s output. At the sign of any problem the machine instantly disables the output and displays the appropriate error code on the display. Built to the Required Standards The Aaron 2250 has passed the following safety standards: CSA C22.2 NO 601.1-M90, UL 2601-1-UL, IEC 60601-2-2, CENELEC EN 60601-1-2, FCC PART 15 Class A. The Goal We wanted to give the surgeon a multi-purpose electrosurgical generator for use in the modern operating room or surgi-center. It needed to feature both monopolar and bipolar functions to satisfy all of his surgical demands with safety, flexibility, reliability, and convenience. This needed to be accomplished with today s economy in mind. The Result The Aaron 2250 from Bovie.
