During robotic hysterectomy, no one was present at console to activate power source to activate pedal.
However, upon advancing instruments there was smoke and a burn spot on the bipolar cautery instrument.
The active esu cord had been plugged into the esu monopolar output instead of the bipolar output.
There was also a burn on the patient's uterus.
The robotic unit had instigated the electrical without anyone telling the panel to.
The patient was having a hysterectomy so she was not harmed.
======================manufacturer response for robotic surgical system, (brand not provided) (per site reporter).
======================error is probable when using singular banana plug receptacles.
There is a disposable part that is configured to eliminate the possibility.
The part number is e0512.
Cord may have been plugged into monopolar port when it should have been in bipolar port.
