Prediction of the threshold of skin burns from radio frequency (RF) current is clinically relevant. The classical studies on skin burns in the 1940s and 1950s [1–3] continue to be the most often cited and utilized framework. In the early 1980s an experimental study of radio frequency (RF) current  utilized circular disk electrodes applied to pig skin to create skin burns. A preliminary model of one of the more severe burn experiments has been described . The objective of this study was to inspect the threshold skin damage experiment  and apply a recent model for micro-vascular disruption .
