B Braun's nerve mapping "pen":
This article was originally published in Clinica
B Braun has received US FDA 510(k) clearance for its Stimuplex Pen for mapping the location of nerves under the skin, prior to administering anaesthesia. It is thought that the device could improve the efficiency of local anaesthetic administration, making it a more attractive option, particularly in rapid turnover environments. The Stimuplex Pen focuses a very small current from a Stimuplex HNS 11 or HNS 12 nerve stimulator in order to identify nerves up to 3cm beneath the skin.
