Milestone Scientific announces update on CompuFlo Epidural System launch
Milestone Scientific reported momentum in the first phase of the commercial roll-out of its CompuFlo Epidural System. CompuFlo is an instrument that helps anesthesiologists objectively identify the epidural space with 99% success on the first attempt. Over the course of eight months, three major anesthesia journals published positive results of four CompuFlo clinical studies. Anesthesia & Analgesia, Anesthesiology Research & Practice and the International Journal of Obstetric Anesthesia all featured studies that found CompuFlo consistently differentiates false loss of resistance from true loss of resistance during epidural placement. Confidence in recognizing a true loss of resistance can help improve the efficacy of anesthesia, reduce complications, and speed the procedure learning curve for trainees.
