Englewood Hospital's New Pain System Reduces Side Effects, Risk of Dependency

Englewood (N.J.) Hospital and Medical Center offers a pain relief system, ON-Q® PainBuster and C-bloc, which directly infuses an anesthetic in a patient to reduce postoperative pain, according to a Paramus Post report.

According to the report, the system does not cause side effects traditionally associated with narcotic use, such as nausea, constipation and sedation. The system also has less risk of dependency and infection and heals the patient faster.

The device features a catheter and portable pump system positioned near the site of surgery. Patients undergoing orthopedic, laparoscopic, breast, plastic and other non-traumatic surgeries can use the ON-Q PainBuster or C-bloc, according to the report.
