Enhanced Patient Protection

Over 80% of all surgical procedures use energy devices,1 and these procedures require a return patient electrode or “sticky pad,” which can cause patient pad-site burns2 and skin adhesive injuries.2 MEGADYNE™ MEGA SOFT™ Reusable Patient Return Electrodes help prevent pad-site burns by limiting heat build up.*
