Novel plaster that delivers pain relief

  • Comment

A novel plaster that delivers anaesthetics, the first of its kind, has been launched in the UK.

Raydan combines an innovative gentle warming system with two potent anaesthetics, lidocaine and tetracaine, to provide pain management.

Its manufacturer, EUSA Pharma, said the system worked twice as fast as topical cream and eliminated pain in 95% of patients after half an hour.

The company claim it will help prevent needle phobia in children and free up nursing time.
