The ENT specific Quantum generator uses Quantum Molecular Resonance (QMR) technology. QMR technology allows a surgeon to cut and coagulate soft tissues at a temperature lower than 50 °C, resulting in very little damage to surrounding structures and tissues, less blood loss through coagulation, and minimize scarring and post op recovery time for the patient.
More traditional Electro and Radio-frequency generators use simple thermal energy transfer to cut and coagulate, while QMR uses a higher frequency spectrum (4-16 MHz) that causes only minimal thermal increase. The main component of energy transmitted to the tissue interacts directly at the molecular level, by breaking up molecular bonds in a non-thermal way.
An example of this is a crystal glass that shatters when it is hit by a sound wave of appropriate frequency. The breaking up of the glass does not depend on the intensity of the sound wave, rather it is due to a properly tuned resonance frequency of the glass.
Overall, Quantum allows obtaining an extremely precise and delicate surgery thanks to the low working temperature as well as non-sticking devices.
Quantum is focused on ENT procedures with both mono-polar and bi-polar functions.
Advantages of Quantum ESU over traditional ESUs are:
- Reduced duration of surgery
- No necrotic tissue or thermal damage
- Less post-operative pain for patients
- Decreased intra-operative blood loss
- Faster healing of the tissue
