Milestone Scientific Commences Sales of CompuFlo® Epidural Disposables Across Three Departments within UofL Health
ROSELAND, N.J., Aug. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Milestone Scientific Inc. (NYSE:MLSS), a leading developer of computerized drug delivery instruments, that provide painless and precise injections, today reported that, following a successful evaluation, it has commenced sales of its CompuFlo® Epidural disposables to UofL Health (University of Louisville), a leading academic health system based in Louisville, Kentucky. UofL Health owns and operates six hospitals and four medical centers, providing patient care to more than 1.5 million patients each year in the state of Kentucky. UofL Health has begun implementing the CompuFlo Epidural System for obstetric anesthesia, acute pain, and chronic pain within its labor and delivery (L&D), operating room (OR) and pain clinic teams.
Arjan Haverhals, CEO of Milestone Scientific commented, “We are honored to announce the adoption of the CompuFlo Epidural System and its CathCheck capability at this leading academic institution. The instrument is being employed in three distinct departments: labor & delivery, acute pain and in the operating room. We are encouraged by this validation as we execute our strategy to become the new standard of care based on improved patient outcomes at lower costs.”
The clinical and safety benefits of the CompuFlo Epidural and CathCheck Verification Systems are backed by extensive published clinical data demonstrating significant reductions in epidural punctures, as well as complication rates, and contribute to a significant savings of time on the part of anesthesiologists. A recent study has shown that the CompuFlo Epidural instrument has the potential to significantly reduce costs associated with morbidity, providing a direct economic benefit to healthcare institutions.
