The Aaron 1250™ Electrosurgical Unit, by Bovie®.
Features Cut, Blend, Coagulation, Fulguration, and Bipolar modes. Bovie incorporates automatic safety features into the Aaron 1250 like self-test circuits, audible tones, discreet outputs, isolated circuitry, and Bovie NEM™ (neutral electrode monitoring).
The Aaron 1250 by Bovie is a multi-purpose electrosurgical generator for use in the modern physician’s office and surgi-center. It features both monopolar and bipolar functions to satisfy all of your surgical demands with safety, flexibility, reliability, and convenience.
The Aaron 1250 incorporates 120 watts of cutting power and 90 watts of blended cutting. It also has two levels of coagulation, pinpoint (80 watts maximum power) and fulguration (40 watts maximum power), plus bipolar (30 watts maximum power).
120 Watts By Design
Bovie’s major goal in designing the Aaron 1250 was to deliver the absolute highest level of safety and quality, but not waste money on features you rarely use. One major area of savings can be found in the output power of 120 watts. Nearly every hospital specification on an electrosurgical generator calls for 300 watts of power. Have you ever asked yourself why you need 300 watts at all stations when it is used so infrequently? We did. It results in spending a few thousand dollars more per unit for a feature that just is not used.
By calling for the Aaron 1250 in most of the surgical suites, you can save a significant amount of money.
Convenient Display Features
For your convenience, the power output of the Aaron 1250 is calibrated in watts with large, illuminated digital displays.
The Aaron 1250 remembers its last used settings; so when you turn the unit on, it performs a safety system check and automatically powers up to those settings.
The Aaron 1250 offers two levels of coagulation: pinpoint and fulguration. Pinpoint coagulation provides precise control of bleeding in localized areas. Fulguration (spray) coagulation provides greater control of bleeding in highly vascular tissues over broad surface areas.
Designed for Safety
Electrosurgical safety is a combination of good equipment design and safe surgical practices. The Aaron 1250, as part of this combination, represents state-of-the-art design using the latest in digital technology.
Bovie incorporates automatic safety systems into the Aaron 1250 like self-test circuits, audible tones, discreet outputs, and isolated output circuitry.
BovieNEM™ and BovieGuard™ means safety is digitally designed inside. The FCFS™ (first come, first served) discrete output design of the Aaron 1250 enhances safety by allowing only one output to be activated at any given time. This feature ensures that only the device you first activate will be an active device. Secondary commands will not override the first command.
For instance, while the monopolar foot controlled output is activated, all handswitching is inactive, as well as the bipolar foot-switch capability.
For additional safety, this unit has totally separate bipolar controls, discrete output, dispersive electrode fault alarms in both sensing and non-sensing modes, and is designed with an isolated RF output.
With the combination of isolated power output, BovieNEM™, Bovie FCFS™ technology, and the constant digital monitoring of all functions, the Aaron 1250 incorporates one of the safest electrosurgical systems available.
The doctor’s responsibility is simply to follow safe electrosurgical practices to ensure his safety and the safety of the O.R. staff and patient.
Digital Error Detection
Digital error detection means unsurpassed safety for the surgeon, O.R. staff, and patient. The Aaron 1250 constantly monitors all functions to ensure proper performance. At the sign of any problem, the machine instantly disables the output and displays the appropriate error code on the display.
Built to the Required Standards
The Aaron 1250 has passed the following safety standards:
- CSA C22.2 NO 601.1-M90
- UL 2601-1-UL
- IEC 60601-2-2 (1998-90)
- CENELEC EN 60601-1-2
- FCC PART 15 Class A
We wanted to give the surgeon a multi-purpose electrosurgical generator for use in the modern physician’s office or surgi-center. It needed to feature both monopolar and bipolar functions to satisfy all of his surgical demands with safety, flexibility, reliability, and convenience. This needed to be accomplished with today’s economy in mind.
