Patients with complex anatomies – such as those with an increased BMI or scoliosis – suffer more failed attempts at needle placement than other patients. That hurts the patient, frustrates the clinician, and wastes time. That’s why RIVANNA created the handheld Accuro Neuraxial Guidance device, clinically proven to increase first-attempt success rates while reducing needle passes and placement times.
“It’s genius,” says Dr. Eddrice McMullan, anesthesiologist at the University of South Alabama Childrens’ and Women’s Hospital, in this video. “When blind palpation fails us, having the visualization of the handheld to identify any curvature would be great.”
