MDBR Staff Writer Published 01 February 2017

Halyard Health has introduced the EZstim III peripheral nerve locator and stimulator, to helps clinicians monitor patients during general anesthesia.

EZstim is a hand-held device which intends ti improve effectiveness of catheter placement for nerve blocks.

The device will deliver the performance of two devices through acting as either a full-function nerve locator or a neuromuscular block monitor.

It features an audible indicator of open circuit, detachable and function-specific lead sets to avoid inappropriate use, as well as built-in bumper to protect from breakage.

According to the company, EZstim III is electrosurgery compatible and can be operated  near other surgical equipment.

EZstim III is part of the ON-Q pain relief system suite of products, which comprises pain pumps, pump accessories and peripheral nerve block accessories.

Halyard Health acute pain general manager Roger Massengale said: "The EZstim III is an important addition to our ON-Q Pain Relief System as we look to provide a full spectrum of solutions for acute post-surgical pain.

"The addition of EZstim III to our product portfolio gives clinicians one more tool to help them provide patients with the best care possible. Use of the ON-Q System can help avoid risks associated with opioid use."
