2014 ESP Award Submission: Encision EndoShield
According to Encision, their new AEM EndoShield™ Burn Protection System provides advanced AEM monopolar energy with guaranteed elimination of stray energy burns to patients. Every ninety minutes in the United States, a patient is severely injured from a stray energy burn acquired during laparoscopic surgery. These completely preventable burns kill 1-2 people per day. Encision’s advanced AEM monopolar energy eliminates these burns, which are often caused by insulation failure and capacitive coupling. Encision feels that the AEM EndoShield Burn Protection System is the only way to deliver monopolar energy with guaranteed elimination of stray energy burns.
