1

What kind of volt is used for ESTHR?

Highhhhhh

2

High volt is sometimes called?

Electro galvanic

3

High volt indicates what?

>150 to 500

4

What kind of current do you need for high volt?

Twin peak monophasic (DC) current

5

What are the benefits of high voltage?

Doesn't allow A delta and C fibers to be stimulated (more comfort) and deeper penetration

8

Positive polarity attracts what?

Neutrophils and macrophages

9

Negative polarity in the proliferation phase attracts what?

Fibroblasts, promotes collagen formation
