Universal handheld system designed to provide functionality for nerve location; with add-on cables for nerve mapping and neuromuscular blocking agent monitoring. All cables sold separately.
Ability to vary frequency; pitch/pulse width; and current.
Visual and audible feedback is given when the target current and pulse width ranges are reached indicating probable nerve proximity.
Displays real time graphical representation of the actual waveform delivered. Pause mode allows changing stimulus parameters without stimulating.
Non-linear current adjustment. User can pre-program 20 different current and pulse width settings.
Items needed for basic nerve stimulation are Stimpod NMS450 (#NB-STIM); Nerve Location and Mapping Cable (#NBMP); Crocodile Clip (#NBCC); and choice of stimulating needle.
Nerve Mapping Probe (#NBMP) enables nerve location and transcutaneous nerve mapping at higher currents (to a maximum of 20mA); while the tip offers a contact surface small enough to ensure effective discrimination.
Tri-axial accelerometer (#NBCA) provides real time feedback of the strength of contraction of the affected limb (Train of Four; Double Burst; and Post Tetanic Count modes only). The strength of each measured contraction is displayed graphically and the relevant ratios are calculated and displayed.
