About Product

SAFIRA is the Latest Addition to our Pain Management Product Range

With a revolutionary new technology that makes regional anaesthesia a one-person procedure, putting control in the hands of the anaesthetist. It allows a single operator, an anaesthetist, to conduct the whole regional block at safer pressures.

Reduces the Risk of Nerve Damage and Improves Patient Outcomes
Anaesthetic solutions are often injected at high pressure, which can cause nerve damage. Serious nerve damage occurs in up to 1% of procedures and transient nerve damage in up to 8% of cases.

SAFIRA helps to prevent injection at unsafe pressures. The built-in safety system limits injection pressure to less than 20psi by automatically stopping, reducing the risk of nerve damage during Regional Anaesthesia. Helping to promote better outcomes for both professionals and patients.

WINNER: “Patient Safety Innovation of the Year” at the HSJ Patient Safety Awards 2021

Saves Time & Reduces Costs
SAFIRA saves five minutes per procedure and limits the costs associated with extra operators* When time is money, SAFIRA saves you both.

Testimonials

DR STEWART SOUTHEY, CONSULTANT ANAESTHETIST

""Having full control over the injection means that I know exactly when, where and how much local anaesthetic I am putting into the patient. And also, the objective pressure limit which is built into the system, provides me with confidence that I am less likely to cause nerve injury.""

DR. EMAD ELDIN FAWZY, CONSULTANT ANAESTHETIST, SHIEKH KHALIFA MEDICAL CITY, ABU DHABI, UAE

""SAFIRA® will not just make regional anaesthesia more convenient, it will also promote safer regional anaesthesia practice in operating rooms, in the wards and also in emergency departments. I believe SAFIRA® is the biggest development in regional anaesthesia since the introduction of ultrasound.""

DR. PETER MERJAVY, CONSULTANT ANAESTHETIST AND ACUTE PAIN LEAD, CRAIGAVON AREA UNIVERSITY TEACHING HOSPITAL, NORTHERN IRELAND, UK

""SAFIRA® gives complete control of the entire performance of peripheral nerve blocks to the anaesthetist. It allows slow and precise injection of local anaesthetic making the real time hydrodissection...very easy.""
