(Regional Anaesthesia Delivery System)

Developed with Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

Current regional anaesthesia procedures require two operators: an anaesthetist who holds an ultrasound scanner and uses this to guide the needle tip placement and a second operator to inject the anaesthetic solution at a required pressure. It has been reported that anaesthetic solutions are often injected at high pressure. High pressure can cause damage to nerve fascicles, with serious nerve damage occurring in up to 1% of procedures and transient nerve damage in up to 8% of cases.

RADS is a regional anaesthesia delivery system which enables the infusion of anaesthetic at safe pressures by one operator.

Medovate is developing RADS with Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.
