Research Facts
A hyfrecator is a low-powered medical apparatus used in electrosurgery on conscious patients, usually in an office setting. It is used to destroy tissue directly, and to stop bleeding during minor surgery. Wikipedia
Used to remove skin lesions, benign and malignant; use discontinued because of the amounts of radio, television and broadcast interference generated by its use (RF1, TV1, BCI)
