Hyfrecators are a type of medical equipment used in the process of electrosurgery. The hyfrecator functions by sending electrical impulses into the body with the use of a probe. Emitting an alternating (AC) current that is low in power but at a high frequency, the typical hyfrecator treatment is aimed at removing warts or sealing off bleeding, allowing the body’s natural processes to take over and competing the healing cycle.
Hyfrecator tips make it possible for the surgeon to be very exact when it comes to addressing tissue that needs to be removed or cauterized. Some designs for this medical tool include two probes, making it possible to generate a low grade current that passes between the tips situated on each probe. Other designs call for a single probe tip that can be used to seal open wounds or to burn off some types of skin cancer.
While a hyfrecator is primarily used to treat humans, the device is also a valuable tool in the practice of veterinary medicine. Veterinarians can use the tool to treat household pets with some sort of abnormal skin activity such as papules or scar tissue resulting from an accident, or fight with other animals. Along with treating dogs and cats, the device is used to treat horses and even less traditional pets like snakes, frogs, and hamsters.
