Manufacturers of electrosurgical generators must follow the strict design criteria of IEC 60601-2-2, which stipulates the specific requirements in order to provide a controlled approach to patient safety when using electrosurgical devices.  A thorough understanding of each energy modality, waveform and tissue effect is critical in reducing potential complications and hazards and the continued performance and safety of these electrosurgical devices must be regularly verified (every 3-6 months).
