The human body is capable of many outstanding feats once it’s been trained enough but even so, the human body is incredibly fragile as well. When a person comes down with some kind of a sickness, they’re extremely vulnerable and even more so when a person is undergoing surgery. Our immunity against bacteria and diseases stops outside out skin, once our bodies are opened up, they’re susceptible to all kinds of infections.
To prevent any complications before, after or during any kind of a surgical procedure, it’s imperative that the equipment used is sterile and ready to operate. Surgical tools are put through many kinds of sterilizing processes to keep them clean but as soon as a tool leaves the sterile environment of the machine used to sterilize it, it’s going to start gathering bacteria straight away like all things. This is why it’s necessary to use anti-bacterial coatings on surgical equipment so that it’s less susceptible to being infested with bacteria before it can be used to operate on a patient’s body. Since these tools are used to cut human tissue, it’s important that they can do so without causing any infection or even gathering microbial from the tissue itself.
Doctors are able to monitor the extent to which eschar or human tissue builds up on these tools but with electro-surgical devices, there can be tissue building up on the tools without anyone noticing. The use of ElectroBond non-stick electrosurgical blades is quickly replacing PFTE coatings just because it’s far more effective at preventing eschar build ups on the devices. This burnt tissue residue can be extremely harmful if left in the body and can cause a whole host of malignant diseases, which is why the coating is absolutely necessary.
