SAFIRA® enables a veterinary practitioner to take control during a regional anaesthesia procedure themselves without the need for an assistant.
A choice of foot pedal or palm operator enables the veterinary practitioner to control aspiration and infusion. This leaves one hand free to hold the block needle and the other hand to hold the ultrasound probe or nerve stimulator (if used).
The veterinary practitioner can judge for themselves the resistance pressure during injection and therefore immediately make any necessary adjustments. The SAFIRA® system injects at a consistent and controlled rate.
SAFIRA® also has a built-in safety mechanism which automatically limits injection pressure. The system is calibrated to automatically stop injection once the predetermined pressure is reached.
