Electrocautery High Frequency Desiccator – Bovie Derm

Brand: Bovie/Symmetry


The Bovie Electrocautery 942™ produces radio frequency current which is useful for the removal and destruction of superficial cutaneous and mucosal lesions. This is done by performing desiccation and fulguration procedures. Electrosurgical desiccation occurs when the electrode is placed directly onto the surface of the lesion. Fulguration occurs when the electrode is held slightly above the lesion and an arc is delivered to the lesion. The Bovie 942 unit also provides fast and efficient bleeding control by coagulation of capillaries and small blood vessels. For the majority of desiccation, fulguration, and coagulation procedures utilizing the standard handpiece in the monopolar output, the patient plate is optional. When used, the patient plate will intensify the coagulation properties of the unit and also lessen the opportunity for an electrosurgical burn. The optional footswitch on the Bovie A942 adds versatility when using the standard handpiece in the monopolar output, as the footswitch allows you to activate the unit by either the handpiece or the footswitch. Bipolar outputs are available for those physicians who prefer to utilize bipolar forceps to perform coagulation procedures. A footswitch is required when using the bipolar output and the patient plate is not used. Procedures that are performed in sensitive areas may require an anesthetic. Flammable anesthetics should not be used.


This High Frequency Desiccator is Designed For Years of Trouble-Free Use


The Bovie A942 by Bovie Medical replaces the Bovie 940. The Bovie A942 is designed and engineered to be the most reliable and durable cautery (hyfrecator)  available today. The unit’s life is prolonged by incorporating the latest in chip technology and reducing the number of internal parts, thereby generating less internal heat. Post-procedure and long-term cleanup are simplified by its non-absorbing, non-staining, high impact plastic case.


Digital Error Detection

Digital error detection means unsurpassed safety for you and your patient. This high frequency desiccator continuously monitors every aspect of the unit’s output. At the sign of any problem the Bovie machine instantly disables the output and displays the appropriate error code on the display.


The Bovie 3-Button Handpiece – Better By Design, Inside And Out

The basic function of a 3-button handpiece is to allow the user to control power up/down and to activate the high frequency desiccator. The Aaron 942 has a technology advantage right in the handpiece: a superbly engineered collet that’s even gold plated for superior conductivity. The collet is attached to our circuit board and the entire handpiece is encapsulated and formed in a high tech polymer that combines comfort for you with a sure grip. The buttons on the handpiece have been designed for superior tactile feel and comfort. Finally, it’s autoclavable so you can have sterility when you need it, and an easy to clean and durable handpiece all the way around.


More And Less

More power with 40 watts High resolution in bi-polar mode – increase and decrease in 1/10th watt increments from zero to ten watts Universal power with 100-240 VAC… the A942 is a global option User friendly with features that can save you time and money less to do with fewer steps to accomplish the same procedures less to buy – Fewer accessories needed for additional functionality


If you are unfamiliar with the operation of a low powered electrosurgery unit, it is advisable to practice on chicken or lean flank steak to visualize the effects at various output and power levels.
