Diathermy, also called “deep heating,” heats deep below the surface of your skin. It targets muscles and joints to provide therapeutic benefits. Diathermy is a therapeutic treatment most commonly prescribed for muscle and joint conditions. It uses a high-frequency electric current to stimulate heat generation within body tissues. The heat can help with various processes, including: increasing blood flow. The three forms of diathermy employed by physical therapists are ultrasound, short wave and microwave.

Argon plasma coagulation (APC)

Argon plasma coagulation (APC) is a medical endoscopic procedure used to control bleeding from certain lesions in the gastrointestinal tract.

APC involves the use of a jet of ionized argon gas (plasma) directed through a probe passed through the endoscope. The probe is placed at some distance from the bleeding lesion, and argon gas is emitted, then ionized by a high-voltage discharge (approx 6kV).

APC is used to treat the following conditions:

  • Angiodysplasias, anywhere in the GI tract
  • Gastric antral vascular ectasia, or watermelon stomach
  • Colonic polyps after polypectomy
  • Radiation proctitis
  • Esophageal cancer
  • UltraSonic Scalpel

    The active blade of an ultrasonic scalpel vibrates 55,500 times per second, producing frictional heat in contact with the tissues. As a result of this frictional heat, the protein in the tissues is denatured into an adhesive material called coagulum to seal the vessel. An ultrasonic scalpel enables vessels to be cut immediately after sealing. Recently, the handpiece has been made smaller, lighter, and easier to use for liver surgery.
