BETHLEHEM, PA – April 8, 2015 – B. Braun Medical Inc. (B.Braun), the market leader in Regional Anesthesia (RA) announced today that it has launched an informative website, PNBMonitoring.com, which will educate visitors about the various ways to integrate complementary monitoring modalities (injection pressure, ultrasound and stimulation) into peripheral nerve block (PNB) procedures.

Key highlights of the website include:

  • PNB monitoring videos, which feature Jeff Gadsden M.D., Associate Professor of Anesthesiology at Duke University Medical Center, who has been a strong advocate and supporter of integrating objective pressure monitoring into practice.
