What the difference between bipolar and monopolar?
There is one basic difference between bipolar and monopolar techniques. With monopolar electrosurgery, a probe electrode is used to apply the electrosurgical energy to the target tissue to achieve the desired surgical effect. With the bipolar electrosurgical method a bipolar device, often a set of forceps, is used.
What is difference between unipolar and bipolar?
Unipolar depression and bipolar depression share the same symptoms with three main differences: 1) Bipolar depression is more episodic than unipolar, 2) Bipolar depression is always on the edge of mania, and 3) Due to the mania risk, bipolar depression treatment is different than unipolar depression treatment.
How do diathermy work?
Microwave diathermy produces heat in the body tissues through application of microwave energy to the concerned area. The microwave energy stimulates tissue molecules, as r.f. diathermy does, converting electrical energy to heat.
What are bipolar electrodes?
A bipolar electrode (BPE) is an electronic conductor in contact with an ionically conductive phase. When a sufficiently high electric field is applied across the ionic phase, faradaic reactions occur at the ends of the BPE even though there is no direct electrical connection between it and an external power supply.

How is bipolar diathermy used to treat hemorrhoids?
Bipolar diathermy employs electrical current to coagulate the hemorrhoidal tissue, including the mucosa and submucosa.31,32 The machine generates a 2-second pulse of energy to accomplish the treatment. Once again, this approach is applicable for small bleeding hemorrhoids and probably has no greater efficacy than sclerotherapy.
