B. Braun To Showcase at AANA Innovative Portfolio of Products Designed To Help Optimize Regional Anesthesia

AANA 2017

BETHLEHEM, PA – September 6, 2017 — B. Braun Medical Inc., a market leader in regional anesthesia, will present its innovative line of Regional Anesthesia products at the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA) conference from September 8-12, 2017 in Seattle, Washington.

In a simulated hospital setting at booth #428, B. Braun will showcase the following new products that are bringing a fresh approach to regional anesthesia:

• Xperius® Point-of-Care Ultrasound System: The ultrasound system is designed to support the needs in regional anesthesia at the point of care. The system offers an intuitive user interface and exceptional image quality for confident needle targeting and positioning, as well as ergonomic features such as an articulating arm. Xperius' imaging complements B. Braun's regional block portfolio. Xperius is the first product resulting from a strategic alliance between B. Braun Melsungen AG and Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA).
• Stimuplex® Ultra 360® Nerve Block Needles: Stimuplex Ultra 360 needles feature B. Braun’s new echogenic 360º X-pattern. The ‘X’ is a unique shape, which when combined with a clear coating, reflects more ultrasound waves back to the probe than previous designs.1 These needles are designed to provide visibility without compromising puncture characteristics.
• SAXA Medical Solutions Anesthesia Disinfection Workstation: B. Braun continues to strive to reduce healthcare-acquired infections through use of the DOCit™ and HubScrub™ to improve intravascular device disinfection in the operating room.2 DOCit is designed to disinfect syringe tips and male luer connectors, and to organize the anesthesia workspace. The HubScrub is designed to disinfect needleless connectors, female luers, and swabbable stopcocks. The workstation is designed to organize the anesthesia workspace in an operating room.

“We are keenly focused on helping clinicians optimize the regional anesthesia process,” said Peter McGregor, Director of Marketing, Pain Control, at B. Braun Medical. “We invite attendees to explore how our products can help improve patient outcomes by visiting our hospital-like setting at AANA.”

Visitors to B. Braun’s booth at the Washington State Convention Center also will see the B-Smart™ Injection Pressure Monitor, which provides a visual indication of high injection pressure and helps signify intraneural placement of the needle tip during peripheral nerve blocks.
