SAFIRA™: SAFer Injection for Regional Anaesthesia
- Creates a single operator procedure
- Engineered safety solution to control injection pressure threshold
- Reduces chances of nerve injury
- Improves patient safety
Current Regional Anaesthesia process:
Current regional anaesthesia procedures require two operators – an anaesthetist who holds an ultrasound scanner and uses this to guide the needle tip placement and a second operator to inject the anaesthetic solution at a required pressure.
It has been reported that anaesthetic solutions are often injected at high pressure.
High pressure can cause damage to nerve fascicles, with serious nerve damage occurring in up to 1% of procedures and transient nerve damage in up to 8% of cases.
A revolutionary new technology for Regional Anaesthesia:
SAFIRA™ – SAFer Injection for Regional Anaesthesia – allows a single operator, an anaesthetist, to conduct the whole regional block at safer pressures.
SAFIRA™ has been developed in line with international quality standards.
