It is no longer necessary to disconnect the stimulator during electrosurgery procedures.* MaxiStim is the first commercially available electrosurgery certified peripheral nerve stimulator and nerve locator. MaxiStim can be used as  peripheral nerve stimulator to monitor neuromuscular transmission to determine the effectiveness of muscle relaxants or as a nerve locator to help locate the targeted fasciculus when delivering regional anesthesia.

MaxiStim includes:

bullet(1) pair EL-5TP Extension Leads with attached Alligator Clip. These leads can be used for nerve stimulation and nerve location.
bullet(2) ProBloc insulated regional block needles**


Optional Accessories for Nerve Location:

bulletTPRN-12S (12" long) Clips to ProBloc Regional Block needles and replaces heavy alligator clips.
bulletTPTJ-24S (7' long) Connects ProBloc HN3 series needles or TPRN-12S to stimulator.
bulletH1543 (8' long) Snap connector lead wire connects stimulator to surface electrode.
bulletMB-4 Mounting Bracket for IV Stand (available but not included with instrument)
