AKUS® NERVE BLOCK
AKUS® needles for the anaesthesia of peripheral plexuses and nerves combine neurostimulation and echogenicity to maximise the results of the technique.
Patented needles with a new design that provide accuracy, safety and versatility, making it easier to perform the nerve-blocking technique.
Fully ergonomic needle hub, specifically designed for nerve blocking with great accuracy, every time.
Its centimetre marking makes it easy to check the depth of needle insertion into the body tissues.
NEW die-cut marking system on the last centimetre of the tip; which makes the needles perfectly visible in ultrasound imaging. Greater accuracy and safety when administering local anaesthesia.
Locating the needle tip in relation to the nerve prevents unseen nerve damage both by puncture and intraneural administration of the anaesthetic. The ergonomic grip of the needle features a magnifying glass effect, which quickly detects the presence of blood inside the needle, warning that the needle is in or near a blood vessel.
PREPARE THE NEEDLE TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS: VERSATILITY TO THE FULLEST.
The AKUS® plexus-blocking needle has a detachable neurostimulation cable connection system, which makes it possible to connect the needle in any desired position. If the anaesthetist does not require stimulation, the power cord does not need to be connected.
The possibility of connecting the syringe directly to the needle enables to perform the anaesthetic technique without the need for another person, which is very useful in some circumstances. If assistance is needed, just connect the extender included with each needle.
Available in various sizes according to the needs and type of block: 50 mm, 70 mm, 90 mm, in gauges of 22G and 21G; and 140 mm in 21G.
THINKING AHEAD… NEW PRO RANGE OF PLEXUS NEEDLES
The new range of AKUS PRO nerve block needles is designed to perform ultrasound-guided plexus block procedures, carried out by experienced professionals that do not require neurostimulation in certain types of patients and blocks. Pro needles come with a double marking system along its entire length, which helps to distinguish the tip from the rest of the needle. The AKUS PRO block needle introduces a new concept to the field of blocks: BI-ECHOGENICITY.
