Bovie® IDS-210


Bovie High Frequency Electrosurgical Generator

The Bovie IDS-210 is a 200 watt high power, operating room generator, by Bovie®. The unit incorporates the power and safety of a premium OR generator at a significant savings to the medical facility. The system delivers 12 monopolar and bipolar RF energy modalities to provide a high level of surgical precision. Engineered with the safety of the patient in mind, the Bovie IDS-210 includes technology such as Bovie NEM™ return split pad contact quality monitoring, Bovie FDFS™ tissue sensing technology, self-test circuits, as well as specialized modalities for laparoscopic and delicate procedures. The Bovie IDS-210 is supported by Bovie’s unprecedented 4 year standard warranty.

TWO CUT MODES — CUT I & CUT II Two cut modes give the surgeon flexibility to cut all types of tissue without losing performance. Cut I generates constant output power over a wide range of impedances. Cut II is a softer cut that generates constant output power with a lower voltage over a small range of impedances suggested for laparoscopic procedures. FOUR LEVELS OF BLEND The Blend mode is a combination of cutting and hemostasis. The IDS-210 gives the surgeon freedom to adjust the desired level of hemostasis. A level setting of 1 is minimal blend with maximum cutting effect. A level setting of 4 is maximum hemostasis (blend) with minimal cutting effect. This adjustment is easily achieved by a incremental 4-level adjustment. The Blend mode improves the rate of targeted tissue desiccation without increasing the power delivered by the generator. THREE COAGULATION MODES — PINPOINT, SPRAY AND GENTLE COAGULATION – Pinpoint provides precise control of bleeding in localized areas. – Spray provides greater control of bleeding in highly vascular tissue over broad surface areas. – Gentle provides a more intense coagulation than in other modes. For instance, when Coagulation is necessary in short amounts of time, reduced electrode carbonization is provided. THREE BIPOLAR MODES — MACRO, MICRO AND STANDARD – Macro Bipolar Mode provides delicate Bipolar coagulation effects to prevent tip tissue adhesion and carbonization. – Micro Bipolar Mode provides precise Bipolar coagulation effects. – Standard Bipolar Mode provides power for conventional Bipolar output. PRESETS The surgeon can store 10 user-defined RF presets for easy recall of frequently used settings. RETURN ELECTRODE SENSING AND CONTACT QUALITY MONITORING The IDS-210 incorporates a return electrode contact quality monitoring system (Bovie NEM™). This system detects the type of return electrode: solid or split. The system also continually monitors the contact quality between the patient and the split return electrode (recommended). This feature is designed to minimize patient burns at the return electrode site. FDSF™ (Fast Digital Feedback System) The FDFS™ (Fast Digital Feedback System) measures voltage and current at 5,000 times a second and immediately adjusts the power to varying impedance during the electrosurgical procedure. The unit’s digital technology senses and responds to changes in tissue density. Unlike analog, this feature reduces the need to adjust power settings manually with varying tissue impedance. THREE FRONT PANEL ACCESSORY CONNECTIONS AND TWO REAR PANEL FOOTSWITCH CONNECTIONS These connectors accept the latest monopolar and bipolar instruments. Monopolar 1 connector accepts a standard 3-pin monopolar connector or adaptor (A1255A) for foot-controlled accessories. Monopolar 2 connector accepts a standard 3-pin monopolar connector for connecting standard monopoly accessories to the generator. The front panel also allows for a standard Bipolar accessory. The rear panel monopolar footswitch connector accepts a Bovie® Monopolar Footswitch (BV-1253B). The rear panel bipolar footswitch connector accepts a Bovie® Bipolar Footswitch (BV-1254B).
