True purpose of doing EST (Electrical Safety Test) on medical device

#1
Hi,

As a biomedical practitioner, we usually do Electrical Safety Test(EST) at the end of scheduled maintenance for a medical devices. We all know that the main purpose of doing EST is to ensure the safety of patient, user and ourselves when using ME.But does it also true that by doing EST we also make the component soldered to circuit board stronger when our tester run 240V to the circuit board. Does it melt the soldering iron at the component for a split second? Thus making it stronger and more reliable. I'm just curious about this. Thanks for reading

No it does not. Where did this theory come from?
