Peripheral Nerve Block

AutoFuser® Disposable Pain Pump Products

Continuous Peripheral Nerve Block

For most patients, post-operative pain is their primary concern before surgery and nearly 80% of patients who experience post-operative pain report experiencing moderate to extreme pain.1 Continuous peripheral nerve blocks have been proven to offer superior post-operative analgesia and improve patient satisfaction compared with opioids, while resulting in fewer minor complications, including nausea/vomiting, pruritis, and sedation.2

When used for continuous peripheral nerve block infusions, AutoFuser® Disposable Pain Pumps can help effectively manage post-operative pain. AutoFuser® Disposable Pain Pumps offer a combination of a continuous hands-free infusion with an optional on-demand patient controlled bolus to immediately address breakthrough pain.
