Cauteriser. View of a surgeon holding a cauteriser and a pair of forceps during an operation on a patient. He is wearing a surgical cap, gloves, gown and face mask in order to maintain a sterile environment. The cauteriser, or electronic scalpel, can be used to seal broken blood vessels and stop bleeding using a high-frequency electric current. The forceps may be used to hold tissue, dressings or equipment during the operation. Behind the surgeon is the operating theatre lamp.
