The device’s numerical, graphical and auditory verification gives anesthesia provides added confidence, according to Livingston, New Jersey-based Milestone.

CompuFlo is 99% successful in identifying the epidural space even for patients with a higher body-mass index, according to the company, citing a study in Anesthesia & Analgesia Journal.

“Pugliese Ciaccio’s new standard of care with the CompuFlo epidural instrument is good for both providers and patients,” said Pino Purrone of PF Medical, a CompuFlo distributor in the Calabria region. “We anticipate more hospitals will follow suit.”

Shares of Milestone traded at $0.35 in Monday’s New York trading.
