The coagulation mode is commonly used to separate tissues. There is less bleeding than with the cutting setting, but more collateral heat injury. The degree of heat generated, and thus tissue destruction, is inversely proportional to the surface area of the diathermy blade in contact with the tissue—and so a light touch with the tip of the diathermy works better than pressure over a broad area.
