New Nephron Partnership Offers Solution for Opioid CrisisAugust 13, 2019
WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. – Nephron Pharmaceuticals Corporation today announced a new partnership with InfuTronix Solutions, LLC. The collaboration offers a cost-effective and efficient non-narcotic therapy solution for post-operative pain management.
“We are proud to partner with InfuTronix Solutions to deliver opioid-free pain medication to patients across the country,” said Nephron CEO Lou Kennedy. “The overuse of opioids is a crisis in America. Non-narcotic pain management is a cost-saving way that companies like ours can help save lives.”
The Nimbus II PainPRO – an electronic ambulatory pain pump distributed by InfuTronix Solutions – is a cutting-edge electronic pain pump that accurately controls delivery of fluid from a source bag of non-narcotic medication to the surgical area.
Prescription opioid medications continue to play a fundamental role in the recovery after invasive surgical procedures such as orthopedics, spine, and major abdominal procedures. As the opioid crisis grows, the search for cost-effective and time efficient alternative solutions is underway to establish consistent and reliable techniques that decrease patients’ reliance on opioids for post-operative pain management.
The Nimbus II PainPRO is designed for increased safety at an exceptional value. With customizable Protocols, Nimbus enables a facility to preload their infusion orders with facility specified safe guards to protect against under or over infusion of medication. Additionally, having a flexible reservoir volume capable to infuse up to 1.5 L of medication, and enhanced features like Programmed Intermittent Bolus mode (PIB), Patient Demand Bolus (PCA), and Delay Start enable Nimbus to extend a non-narcotic infusion therapy further into the recovery period reliably turning 2 days of therapy into 4 or more as desired. Patient reported outcomes can be tracked with the PRO App.
When paired with the Nephron non-narcotic pre-mixed medication bags, the total solution effectively manages pain throughout the episode of care. The Nephron pre-mixed bags enable this package to be a turnkey solution that is accessible, easy, and affordable for any customer, regardless of if they have a compounding pharmacy on-site or not. Nephron’s state-of-the-art facility brings a high level of quality, safety, and reliability the industry deserves. Together, Nephron and Nimbus offer the all-inclusive workflow solution at an aggressive price point delivering greater value for hospitals and surgery centers striving to produce an opioid avoidance strategy for the patients they serve.
