The Auckland Patient Return Electrode is a large current-limiting gel pad.
It provides increased safety for returning current flow to the generator, and acts as a fully waterproof and reusable pressure reduction pad.
The Auckland Pad combines a safe and reusable patient return electrode with a pressure-reducing pad. It removes the need for disposable sticky plates during electro-surgical procedures, removing any risk of patient harm due to pad-site burns.
The Pad is filled with a viscoelastic polymer, which effectively reduces patient pressure sores associated with direct pressure, shearing and friction. The Auckland Pad is ideal for a wide variety of surgical procedures making it a key item for both safety and simplicity during surgery.
Dual Cord Auckland Pad
The Dual Cord Pad has two electro-surgical connectors, enabling two generators to be used at the same time. This considerably improves ease for staff, as it ends the need for multiple sticky plate placement sites. This brings further safety benefits to the patient and additional cost savings to the hospital.
Paediatric Auckland Pad.
Specifically designed for babies and infants weighing from 350g. The current-limiting technology makes the safety advantages exceptional.
The ability to perform mono-polar surgery without the need to attach sticky plates onto the delicate skin of the infant, and thereby remove the risk of an unintended burn, is revolutionary.
Auckland Pad - Lite
The Auckland Pad - Lite offers all the same patient safety benefits without the weight that comes with a full pressure reduction pad. At 120cm x 50cm it is a full size pad and yet the Auckland Pad - Lite weighs 1.92 kg. As with all our pads it works effectively with patients from 350 grams with no upper limit and it is ideal for theatres with shorter procedures.
