Buzzy® Helps for Professional Use
Even patients who grow accustomed to shots can find going to the lab for blood draws and IV access difficult. When the phlebotomist is too busy to wait for numbing creams or does not use needle pain control, Buzzy® provides proven relief for IV and lab draw pain.
Switch on to activate Buzzy’s vibration, then place Buzzy® and ice wings proximal to the lab draw or IV area. Do not place directly on site of access. The rounded bottom end of Buzzy® should be 3-5cm proximal to the site. Turn Buzzy® on and leave in place and vibrating throughout access. Immediately prep area and cannulate as usual.
More and more dialysis patients are choosing home dialysis over in-center treatment. Whether at home or in-center, Buzzy® Helps patients and dialysis techs for pain relief during access for dialysis.
Place Buzzy® and ice wings proximal to the access area. The rounded end of Buzzy® should be 3-5 cm proximal to the site.Turn Buzzy® on and leave in place and vibrating throughout access. For deeper desensitization to tissues below the skin, and when vasoconstriction is not an issue, we recommend Buzzy® be left in place 30 – 60 seconds prior to access; ice adds about 60% of the pain relief.
InjectionsOver 24 million adults are self-injecting an expanding variety of biologic options for treatment at home of a wide variety of conditions. Whether treating arthritis, diabetes, MS, Crohn’s Disease, Psoriasis, the injectable medications can cause painful burning sensations. Buzzy® can help.
Pain control is maximized by placing Buzzy® with ice pack on the site of injection, leaving in place 30 – 60 seconds. The ice wings cool and numb the area and the vibration desensitizes the area. Next, move Buzzy® just proximal (toward the head or spine) during the shot. When injections burn, the pain can be relieved by rubbing Buzzy’s cold and vibration over the area after the medicine is administered. There is no risk of shrinking blood vessels.
Physical TherapyTreating pain with drugs is not always a good option. Opioids, NSAIDs, and even acetaminophen may cause adverse health reactions. Research shows that high frequency vibration can help healing, and putting cold on pain is as old as ice itself. Buzzy’s patented combination of vibration and cold can help.
Place Buzzy® with ice pack directly where the pain is for 10 - 20 minutes, with vibration activated. If the area is constantly aching, leave vibration going as long as necessary. Great for carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, knee pain, plantar fasciitis, pre-weight lifting warm up, post-exercise soreness. Decrease inflammation, and still keep the blood flowing. Use twice a day or according to your doctor’s recommended icing regimen.
