Civco offers new ultrasound guides

Civco Medical Solutions is now offering transverse needle guides that boost first-time insertion success rates during ultrasound-guided central line placement and nerve block procedures, according to the company. The L25 Series guides are compatible with the SonoSite MicroMaxx, S Series, and M-Turbo ultrasound systems. Each consists of a custom reusable biopsy bracket and a disposable snap-on guide. The single-use design of the needle guide, along with a telescopically folded CIV-Flex transducer cover, reduces the risk of cross-contamination and increases patient throughput, according to Civco.
