Upstate’s use of Numby highlighted in The Post Standard
Michael Vivlemore, clinical manager for the pediatric emergency room, and nurse Anne Carter are quoted in the March 22 Post-Standard on a new device in use in the pediatric emergency room that numbs a child’s hand before nurses insert at an intravenous line or a child’s back before doctors perform a lumbar puncture. The device, called the Numby, administers a topical anesthetic through a low electrical current that warms the medicine helping it penetrate down to the blood vessels. The device, now in use in the University Hospital pediatric ER, was purchased through funds from the Children’s Miracle Network.
