The FDA clears Milestone’s Scientific’s CompuFlo epidural computer-controlled anesthesia system.

The CompuFlo epidural system provides anesthesiologists and other healthcare providers the ability to quantitatively determine and document the pressure at the needle tip in real time.

The device’s proprietary dynamic pressure sensing technology (DPS) allows it to provide objective visual and audible in-tissue pressure feedback that allows anesthesiologists to identify the epidural space.

This clearance was supported by clinical study in which the anesthesiologists objectively identified the epidural space with 99 percent success on the first attempt. — Cynthia Jessup
