StimuCath Safety Kit
Tuohy Needle

Tuohy Needle


The StimuCath Tuohy needle is specially designed to reduce the risk of shearing the catheter, which allows for pull back and redirection of the catheter without withdrawing the needle and re-sticking the patient. This can save procedural time and reduce patient discomfort (See IFU for complete instructions, including proper retraction techniques).

Catheter

StimuCath Catheter


The Arrow StimuCath continuous peripheral nerve block catheter allows clinicians to objectively confirm accurate catheter tip placement through nerve stimulation, which can help improve secondary block success. 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 improve clinical outcomes;1 significantly decrease pain scores;2,3,4 and reduce rescue medication consumption,3,5,6 compared to non-stimulating catheters. The StimuCath continuous peripheral nerve block catheter has been clinically proven to be safe and effective for post-operative pain management1,2,7,8,9
