B. Braun Medical Inc. (B.Braun) will launch Contiplex® C, its revolutionary, one-step, echogenic catheter-over-needle system and unveil Contiplex Echo, its echogenic, styleted catheter, both designed for Continuous Peripheral Nerve Blocks (CPNB) at the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) annual meeting in San Francisco, California, October 12 th-14th. As the market leader in regional anesthesia, B.Braun is committed to providing products and services to meet the changing needs within the acute pain management field.
Contiplex C is an innovative catheter-over-needle system for CPNB and practitioners seeking to transition from single shot to continuous techniques. The catheter tip can be purposely directed to an exact location, without the need to thread. Once the catheter tip is in the desired location, the needle is removed in one easy step, and the catheter is already placed. Its catheter-over-needle design helps reduce leakage because the catheter sits tightly within the puncture site.
Contiplex Echo is a new styleted catheter, featuring flat coil technology to enhance echogenicity. Its rigid body is designed to facilitate controlled threading with the aid of a stylet. Contiplex Echo will be available in both open and closed tip (multi-port) configurations along with the Contiplex Tuohy Ultra needle to provide echogenicity from both needle and catheter during CPNB placement.
Attendees are encouraged to visit B.Braun’s booth #1917 at ASA to experience hands-on demonstrations of these and other exciting regional anesthesia products, infusion pumps, CAPS® pre-filled sterile admixtures, and anesthesia IV administration sets from B.Braun.
