The Stimpod NMS 410 nerve stimulators provide clinicians true audiovisual feedback to help facilitate needle and catheter placement. The Stimpod visually displays waveform feedback of the actual current delivered, with a deformed square indicating a poor connection of the anode. A warning symbol will flash to alert the user if the actual delivered charge is less than 90% of the charge setting.
The Proximity Indicator provides notification when the optimal distance between the needle / catheter tip and nerve has been reached. The Stimpod allows the user to define a target current and pulse width range. When a contraction is elicited within that target charge range, the device will produce an audible beep(s) to alert the user to the needle / catheter's proximity to the nerve.
