    The references to the clinic use of high frequency electric currents were tested for the first time in 1890. drsonval caused a high frequency current of 1A to pass through his assistants and his own body. Although he knew that similar electrical intensities at low frequencies were potentially fatal, drsonval described only a sensation of heat (Guy, 1984). Following works led to the development of inductive and capacitive methods for the application of high frequency currents in the body, generating a non-superficial heat (Guy, 1984). These methods became known as diathermy, from the Greek word that means heating by means of.

    Diatermed II 4022 is a high frequency equipment (27,12 MHz) for Diathermy through Short Waves, operating in Continuous and Pulsed modes.

    This equipment may be used with plate electrodes or Schliephakes electrodes (optional). Plate electrodes and the connection cables are made or vulcanized silicon rubber (unique in the national market). The quality of the raw material employed in our electrodes and cables provide a safe and comfortable application.

    Schliephakes electrodes (optional) may be adjusted in the distance electrode-skin, which allows the movement of the concentration of heat generated.

    It is a modern equipment, built with high quality electronic components. The project was based on the security requirements provided by NBR IEC 60.601.1

    Finally, we congratulate you for purchasing this equipment. Quality, Technology and Reliability assure that Diatermed II 4022 with Continuous and Pulsed Short Waves is a safe and highly reliable equipment.

    The function of certain implanted electrical devices such as pacemakers, can be negatively affected during treatment with short-wave therapy. If in doubt, should be heard the recommendations of the physician responsible for patient;

    The function of other equipment connected to a patient can be negatively

    affected by the operation of short-wave equipment;

    Patients usually should not be treated with short-wave therapy when they have reduced their sensitivity to heat the treatment area, unless the physician responsible for patient to be informed;

    Diatermed II 4022

    MU_4022_ENG_Rev09_082010 10

    The short-wave therapy should not be applied to patients through clothing. Conductive material should be eliminated from the treatment area;

    Body of patients who have metal implants (medullary pins, for example) should normally be excluded from the treatment area, unless special techniques are used;

    Hearing aids should be removed from the patient for treatment;

    The patient must not come into contact with conductive parts that are connected to land or have an appreciable capacitance to ground and that can lead to unwanted paths represent current and radiofrequency. In particular, should not be used beds or chairs with metal frame;

    The connection cables associated with the applicator should be positioned so

    that a patient contact or conductive objects or absorbing power is avoided. It is recommended that the equipment operator to inspect the insulation of your

    cords and applicators to check for possible damage; Do not dispose of such equipment or fittings in the trash at the end of its useful

    life. There are substances in the equipment that may be harmful to nature, if not treated properly. In need of disposal of the equipment or its accessories, refer to the material CARCI, which will follow up accordingly.

    Important observations:

    This equipment is not adequate for use in the presence of an anesthetic mixture capable of inflammation in contact with the air or nitrous oxide.

    Furniture and Clothing

    Electromagnetic Interference.

    The Diatermed II 4022 produces an electromagnetic field which is intended to generate thermal and biological effects in tissues and joints of the human body. In the open air, the strength of the electromagnetic field generated from electrodes, cables and treated patient is reduced in quadratic form with distance. This electromagnetic field can affect the electronics equipments placed in the neighborhood. For medium and low frequency physiotherapy equipments, this modulation can become perceptible to the patient as well. The susceptibility to electromagnetic interference of equipments from different manufacturers can be very different. This is due to the fact that some manufacturers are still insufficiently shielding their equipment against external electromagnetic fields. In the event of interference, we recommend contacting the manufacturer.

    It is recommended attention to the following items in order to minimize possibility of electromagnetic interference

    The greater the distance between the short-wave equipment and other equipment, lower electromagnetic interference. Place your shortwave unit and the patient in treatment, at least 8 meter from other electronic equipment. Make sure there are no metal oblong conductors objects in the vicinity, because they act as antennas (specially objects with a length of about 5,5 meters). Use a separate group of electric power (phase) for the shortwave equipment. Keep power cords away. The high frequency will be considerably reduced when the shortwave equipment is installed in a Faraday Gage.

    PHYSIC PRI NCIPLES o f SHORT WAVES High Frequency Electrotherapy

    The high frequency electrotherapy is defined as the therapeutic use of electromagnetic oscillations with frequencies superior to 300 KHz. Such high electromagnetic frequency oscillations do not cause the depolarization of the nerve fibers, but the electromagnetic energy may turn into thermal energy inside the body tissue. Therapy by Short Waves is a form of high frequency electrotherapy.

    Electromagnetic radiations with frequencies between 10 MHz and 100 MHz are known as short waves. The frequency employed in the Short Waves diathermy is 27.12 MHz.

    The relation between frequency and wavelength comes from the following equation:

    V = . f Where: V is the propagation speed of light in vacuum (300,000 Km/s)

    f is the frequency (in this case, 27.12 MHz) is the wavelength

    The heat produced by the Short Waves therapy is based on the principle that dipolar molecules found in living tissues are made basically of water and some proteins. These molecules are also affected by the electric fields. The positive pole of the molecule lines up towards the negative pole of the electric field and, this way, the alternate field of Short Waves Diathermy cause the rotation of such molecules, since the electric field between the electrodes is rapidly altered (about 27 million times per second). The heat resulting from the frictional drag between adjacent molecules describes this process as a reasonably efficient method of heating.

    The heat is generated according to the following equation: Q = I 2. R t Where: Q heat in Joule

    I current amplitude R ohmic resistance t time in seconds

    MU_4022_ENG_Rev09_082010 13


    Continuous Mode Short Waves

    When Short Waves are continuously applied for a certain period of time, the dipolar molecules of the tissue initiate a continuous oscillating movement, which generates energy by the frictional drag between adjacent molecules, which is then transformed into heat.

    Pulsed Mode Short Waves

    The pulsed Short Waves consist of the application of a series of pulse trains with a specific frequency and duration.

    Figure 4 exemplifies the emission of Short Waves in pulsed mode. High frequency (27.12 MHz) is modulated by a low frequency (selected according to the type of treatment). The duration of the pulse trains is always constant in 400 ms.

    The intensity of this energy is directly proportional to the modulation frequency in the pulsed mode, that is, the lower the modulation frequency, the lesser is the total energy amount, and vice versa.

    As in:

    T = 1 / f Where: T is the time in milliseconds (ms) F is the frequency in Hertz (Hz)

    The Pulse Duration is steady (400 ms). The conclusion is that, for the same intensity, if the modulation frequency is increased the energy applied is also increased, which causes the median power to increase in the same proportion.

    The median power is obtained through the following equation:

    Pm = (Pp x Tp x Fp) Where: Pm is the median power Pp is the peak power Fp is the modulation frequency

    MU_4022_ENG_Rev09_082010 15

    The chart below illustrates the parameters required to calculate the median power:

    In Diatermed II, the pulsed mode frequencies (Fp) are: 45, 70, 85, 115, 145, 175, 200, 230, 300 and 400 Hz

    The maximum peak power (Pp) in pulsed mode is 250 Watts (obtained with intensity at the maximum position and tuning at 100%)

    The pulse duration (Tp) is 400 ms (400 x 10 6 seconds).

    Therefore, the median power for the lowest frequency, which is 45 Hz, will be:

    Pm (45 Hz) = 250 x 400x10 6 x 45 Pm (45 Hz) = 4,5 Watts

    And for the highest frequency, which is 400 Hz, it will be:

    Pm (400 Hz) = 250 x 400 x 10 6 x 400 Pm (400 Hz) = 40 Watts

    Diatermed II 4022 Short Waves may be used with plate electrodes (17x12 cm) or round electrodes of Schliephake type.

    The plate electrodes come with two 0.8 cm thick distancing felt pads and a cloth cover to involve them, which is intended to increase the electrode-skin distance.

    Schliephake type electrodes (optional) are available in two sizes with emission area measuring 85 cm2 and 130 cm2. These electrodes may have the electrode-skin distance adjusted from 0 to 2.5 cm.

    Next to the electrode outputs there is a place to install the support for Schliephakes electrodes, as indicated in figure 6 A.

    For a more efficient use of Diatermed II 4022, the electrode cables (plates and Schliephake) are of connection type, which allows the combination of electrodes to be used according to the application. These electrodes combination may be: two plates, two Schliephake, one plate and one Schliephake; always associating the electrode-skin distance in order to better distribute the heat and the deep heat production.

    There is a security device (figure 6B) located on the top of the right side, in which the patient may activate a protection system pulling a cord and interrupting immediately the equipment operation.

    The indications presented by the literature are based on biophysics researches, which mostly coincide with those originated by the empiricism developed by the clinical practices. These indications are fundamentally based on the capacity of Short Waves to heat deep tissues.

    Short Waves have been used successfully as an adjuvant therapy in the following general cases (non-exhaustive list): Indications for Pulsed Short Wave Therapy

    A- Post-Traumatic Diseases: Contusion Contracture Rupture Fracture Hematoma Lacerations It is very important that the treatment of these disease and wounds starts as soon as possible.

    B- Postoperative diseases: Post-operation of the mandible Post-operation of foot and thigh.

    C- Inflammations : Chronic osteitis Bursitis Sinusitis

    D- Peripheral Circulatory Diseases

    E- Internal Organ Diseases

  • Diatermed II 4022

    Indications for Continuous Short Wave therapy: Inflammatory processes, Distensions, Sprains, Luxations, Fractures, Trauma of soft tissues in general, boils, Cellulite, Neuralgia, Neuritides, Hemiplegia, Otitis, Mastitis, Sinusitis.

    CONTRAINDICATIONS TO THE USE OF DIATHERMY In all these years a large number of contraindications for short wave therapy were identified. Some are clearly documented, others are based on suppositions. Others depend on dose or on location. For these reasons, the contraindications are divided into: Absolute Contraindications MALIGNANT TUMORS IMPLANTED ELECTRONIC DEVICE PACEMAKERS AND HEARING AIDS PREGNANCY TUBERCULOSIS FEVER RHEUMATOID ARHTRITIS - Relative Contraindications IMPLANTED METALS HEAT SENSITIVITY PROBLEMS SEVERE ARTERIAL AND VENOUS CIRCULATORY PROBLEMS such as ARTERIOSCLEROSIS,THROMBOSIS, ETC.

    Diatermed II 4022

    MU_4022_ENG_Rev09_082010 24

    Do not apply locally (with exception of submitis dose) since it is difficult for the tissue in question to adapt to the supplied heat. ACUTE INFECTIOUS DISEASES , ACUTE INFLAMMATIONS - Unproven Contraindications (but Particularly traditional) OSTEOPOROSIS TISSUES THAT DIVIDE RAPIDLY - HEMOPHILIA USE OF ANTICOAGULANT DRUGS General note:- Short wave diathermy must be used with precaution on areas of sensorial affectation. Special care is also needed for debilitated patients, since the dosimeter depends largely on the sensation of heat felt on the part of the patient. Pain is an indicator that excessive heat is being produced.

    The Short Waves therapy is contraindicated in the following cases (non-exhaustive list):

    Preservat ion and Prevent ive Maintenance

    We recommend that your Diatermed II be inspected and calibrated

    once a year. Be sure that the device is unplugged from the main energy source

    before cleaning the equipment. Use only a cloth dampened in water and soap to clean the equipment

    cover. Do not clean by pulverization or immersion. Control regularly the energy source and the power cable connection to

    the electric network. Do not coil the power cable to make it shorter, for it may harm the equipment by causing induced currents.

    Always keep the electrode cables parallel. Do not cross them or put them too close, otherwise there will be loss of power, which reduces the life of the valves.

    Control regularly the electrode cable connections to the equipment and the plates (or Schliephake).
