    ArthroCare's unique waveform has a sharp leading edge that requires less time to generate plasma and therefore allows more time for active ablation. By contrast, other controllers have a higher frequency sine waveform that delivers a gradual ramp and requires more time to reach the maximum voltage for tissue ablation, thereby allowing less time for tissue removal.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 6.
