for First Attempt Epidural Placement
Traditional loss-of-resistance technique relies on subjective factors to identify entry to the epidural space, which make insertion a difficult procedure to master for trainees. Studies show up to 90 patient epidural placements may be necessary to reach basic clinical competency.
CompuFlo Trainer links trainee tactile feel with visual and audible confirmation of pressure changes to verify the epidural space. CompuFlo's real-time Dynamic Pressure Sensing technology® detects tissue changes that are imperceptible by touch. This intelligence allows the trainee to objectively discriminate between true and false loss of resistance and confirm location.
CompuFlo® Epidural Instrument is proven more effective in labor and delivery patients than traditional loss of resistance technique.
