The remOVE DC Impulse is a medical electrical device which allows the fragmentation of OTSC® and FTRD® clips in the digestive tract when used in combination with a remOVE DC Cutter Set.
The remOVE DC Impulse generates a bipolar current pulse. This DC pulse is applied onto the OTSC®/FTRD® clip via the DC Cutter instrument resulting in localized melting and cutting of the clip. The clip is grasped with the DC Cutter instrument preferably at the thinnest parts.
The remOVE DC Impulse is designed to ensure that a direct pulse can only be generated when sufficient contact with a segment of the clip is established. Sufficient contact is indicated through an acoustic signal.
|Initial charging||ca. 10 min|
|One-time duration of the impulse during activation||max. 65 ms|
|Interval between activations||≥ 6 s|
|Items per package||1|
Successful completion of charging cycle is indicated through three short acoustic signals in quick succession. The status display indicates operational readiness through emitting constant green light from all eight LEDs.
As soon as all eight green LEDs are constantly on, the remOVE DC Impulse is ready for use.
Before application the endoscope has to be protected using the remOVE Shield.
