Ultrasound for Anesthesiology - Medical / Health Care - Clinical Services
A single-probe ultrasound for whole-body assessment that plugs into your smart device, and fits in your pocket. Butterfly iQ+ is built for more control of regional nerve blocks, guided interventions and peri-operative care.
Butterfly iQ+ helps clinicians with peri-operative decision-making and pain management.
Butterfly iQ+ provides in-pocket accessibility for nerve block guidance thanks to high-fidelity B-mode, as well as Needle Viz™ developed specifically for procedural support. Ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks have been associated with higher success rates than traditional anatomic techniques1.
Now with the world’s first POCUS Biplane Imaging, it is possible to see the short and long axis of your needle simultaneously in real-time. Biplane Imaging has been built to support regional nerve blocks, peripheral IV access, pain management injections, and more. Studies show that ultrasound guidance can improve success rates, reduce the number of attempts and decrease the complications associated with CVC insertion2.
A focused bedside transthoracic echocardiogram performed by anesthesiologists has been shown to accurately detect significant cardiovascular pathology and impact perioperative management3. Utility includes assessment of global cardiac function, as well as point-of-care shock assessment.
Butterfly iQ+, with imaging developed in partnership with anesthesiology, can help the clinician identify gastric contents. Even in fasted patients, residual gastric content has been associated with complications of pulmonary aspiration, leading to up to 9% of anesthesia-related deaths4. By identification of 'gastric fullness' at the bedside, appropriate surgical management decisions can be made.
