Incorrect handling and care, as well as misuse, can lead to premature wear of surgical instruments or risks to patients and users. Intended Use Bipolar scissors are designed to cut, dissect and coagulate selected tissue. Bipolar clamps and clamp-scissors are designed to grasp, compress and coagulate or thermally seal selected tissue. The fully assembled instrument (if assembly is needed) has to be connected – with the appropriate cable - to monopolar or bipolar output of an HF generator. Only the defined parameters has to be used. Maximum output voltage of the generator, Umax: Bipolar scissors (REF 70-781-18 - 70-785-23, REF 70-795-27 - 70-797-27):  300 Vp  Bipolar clamps (REF 70-790-14 - 70-791-19): 				  250 Vp  Appropriate connecting cables:  Bipolar scissors		  Bipolar cable REF 70-201-30 - 70-205-50  Appropriate connecting cables:  Bipolare clamps		  Bipolar cable REF 70-206-30 - 70-208-50  Instruments for electrosurgery must only be used by persons who have been specially trained or instructed in this. Contraindications • Do not use the instrument if, in the opinion of the attending physician, the risks to the patient outweigh the benefits. Incidents that have been reported in connection with the use of electrosurgical systems • Unintended activation with resulting tissue injury in the wrong location and/or damage to the equipment. • Fire in connection with surgical drapes and other inflammable materials. • Alternating current paths leading to burns on spots where the patient or user comes into contact with components without insulation. • Explosions caused by sparks in the proximity of inflammable gases. • Perforation of organs. Sudden severe bleedings. Use and safety instructions Non-observance of these use and safety instructions may lead to injuries, malfunctions or other unexpected incidents. • When using electrosurgery in patients with pacemakers or other active implants, special requirements apply (e.g. low HF-current, patient monitoring). In any case, a cardiologist or appropriate medical specialist must be consulted. • Before initial use and any further use, all instruments must be completely cleaned, disinfected and sterilised and their function must be checked. • It is very important to check every surgical instrument for visible damage and wear, such as cracks, breaks or insulation defects before each use. In particular areas such as blades, tips, notches, locking and blocking devices, as well as all movable parts, insulations and ceramic elements must be checked carefully.													 Bipolar scissors include high-quality ceramic parts which have to be treated with particular care and protected against breakage. • Never use any damaged instruments. • Never use the instruments in the presence of flammable or explosive substances. • When temporarily not in use, the instrument must be placed electrically insulated from the patient. • Activate electrosurgical current only if the contact areas are in full view and have good contact with the tissue that needs to be treated. Do not touch any other metallic instruments, trocar sleeves, optics or similar objects during use. • Observe the use and safety instructions of the manufacturer of the high-frequency surgical device. Reprocessing Due to the product design, the materials used and the intended purpose, it is not possible to define a limit with regard to the maximum possible number of reprocessing cycles. The serviceable life of the instruments is determined by their function as well as by a careful handling. Instruments for electrosurgery are by their nature subject to increased wear depending on the type and time of use. Preparation and transport Immediately after each use, clean the instruments with a soft brush under cold tap water until all visible contamination is removed. Do not use fixation agents or hot water (>40°C). Storage and transport of the instruments to the reprocessing location must take place in a sealed container. Manual precleaning 1. Immerse the instrument in cold water for 5 minutes. 2. Brush the instruments under cold water until all visible impurities are removed.
