Peripheral Nerve Blocks

Arrow® FlexBlock® Continuous Peripheral Nerve Block


The Arrow® FlexBlock® continuous peripheral nerve block system is designed to provide:

Visiblity: The FlexBlock® catheter's coil-reinforced, polyurethane body is designed to help improve continuous nerve block success by providing clinicians with an echogenic catheter. The FlexBlock┬« catheter features a wire reinforced catheter design, allowing it to resist kinking. The distal end of the catheter features a flexible catheter tip, while the integral stylet provides additional rigidity of the catheter body.

Efficiency: The specially designed Tuohy needles are designed to allow clinicians to retract the catheter back into the needle, if necessary, without withdrawing the needle and reinserting the needle into the patient*.

Security: All standard FlexBlock® catheterization kits and sets include the customized StatLock® catheter securement device, which is designed to securely anchor the FlexBlock® catheter, SnapLock adapter, and injection tubing to the patient.

Arrow® StimuCath® Stimulating cPNB Catheter


 

The Arrow® StimuCath® continuous peripheral nerve block catheter is designed to allow clinicians to objectively confirm accurate catheter tip placement through nerve stimulation. The wire-reinforced catheter body and unique coil tip are visible under ultrasound, providing additional feedback on the catheter location to the clinician. Stimulating catheters have been shown to more accurately locate the nerve bundle compared to non-stimulating catheters;1 significantly decrease patient pain scores post-surgery;2,3,4 and reduce rescue medication consumption,3,5,6 compared to non-stimulating catheters.
