AKUS spinal anaesthesia needles have the following features:
A new needle hub design developed in collaboration with anaesthetists, designers, and engineers. The result is an extraordinarily ergonomic needle hub, which facilitates the use of spinal needles for performing the anaesthetic technique.
-Easy selection of the right grip from the first contact.
-Possibility to grip the needle in all possible, comfortable, and logical ways.
-Its extraordinary and ergonomic design facilitates a fast and safe location of the intrathecal space, avoiding excessive unwanted punctures that damage the needle and harm the patient.
ERGONOMICS AND ACCURACY
A DIFFERENT TYPE OF HUB FOR EACH NEEDLE
Quincke tip needles have a specific grip that easily differentiates them from Whitacre needles, clarifying the needle type and avoiding confusion.
A small magnifying glass in the needle hub provides a quick view of the CSF.
TYPES OF SPINAL NEEDLES
AKUS Spinal includes Whitacre pencil-point spinal needles available in 22G, 23G, 25G, 26G, and 27G gauges.
Quincke : 22G, 25G, 26G, and 27G.
They are made of high-strength surgical steel that provides an extraordinary balance between tenacity and deflection, preventing the deformation of the needle even when patients undergo a very complex puncture.
The tip of the needle has a larger hole, which provides a high CSF output flow, obtaining a quick view of the CSF.
The AKUS needles’ connection cone has a new design that facilitates a perfect fit of Luer-lock and Luer-slip syringes. Such a precise fit prevents unwanted leakage of anaesthetic solution, even at high infusion pressures.
The larger tip hole facilitates the administration and distribution of drugs within the subarachnoid space.
