NMS410

The STIMPOD NMS410 is a precision nerve locating tool used for localizing specific neural pathways. Localization of nerves by electrical stimulation involves connecting the nerve stimulator to a conducting needle through which local anaesthetics can be injected. The distance of the needle (cathode) from the nerve can be estimated by establishing the minimum threshold current required, facilitating a neuromuscular response.
The STIMPOD nerve stimulator is a device that supplies electrons to depolarize a nerve. The number of electrons supplied to the nerve over a certain period of time equals the current.
Depolarizing a nerve causes a muscle contraction, and anaesthetists use these muscle contractions to ascertain certain conditions within a patient – whether it be the onset or reversal of a neuromuscular blocking agent, or the localization of a nerve for a regional block procedure
The use of a peripheral nerve stimulator provides the following useful information:
Peripheral nerve stimulation may be helpful in assisting localization of mixed afferent and efferent nerves, during regional nerve blocks with local analgesia.

NMS450

The STIMPOD NMS450 is an objective monitoring device using accelerometry for measuring the muscle contraction following stimulation of the respective motor neuron for patients under anaesthesia.
