The STIMPOD nerve stimulator for anesthesia displays real time graphical representation of the actual waveform delivered.
The displayed waveform serves as a quick reference for excessive impedance (> 20kOhm) in the circuit. The waveform will indicate if the pulse is delivered according to the settings. If the waveform is not square, this will immediately indicate excessive impedance in the circuit and all elements in the circuit i.e. ecg electrodes and/or skin condition, needs to be re-assessed before nerve location can be successfully completed.
Combined Nerve Mapping and Nerve Location:
Auto sensing technology provides a solution for simultaneous nerve mapping and nerve location. The Stimpod nerve locator monitors whether the mapping probe or needle touches the patient and adjusts the current range accordingly, ensuring quick and precise nerve location.
The Stimpod Nerve Mapping Probe was designed to enable transcutaneous nerve mapping at higher currents (to a maximum of 20mA), whilst the tip offers a contact surface small enough to ensure effective discrimination.
