Gebauer's Ethyl Chloride® instant topical anesthetic spray (vapocoolant) is FDA cleared to temporarily control the pain associated with injections, starting IV's and venipuncture, minor surgical procedures and minor sports injuries.
When topically applied to the skin, Ethyl Chloride creates an instantaneous numbing and cooling effect on the surface of the application site by the immediate evaporation of the product from the skin surface. The cooling sensation produced is directly related to the type of stream and the distance from the point of contact.
Gebauer’s Ethyl Chloride® is available in several variations to provide medical professionals with a choice of delivery for instant patient comfort.
Gebauer's Ethyl Chloride® spray is the long-time recognized and preferred instant topical anesthetic for pain control by healthcare practitioners in medical practices including sports medicine, orthopedics and podiatry. Each bottle and can of Gebauer's Ethyl Chloride contains pure Ethyl Chloride (CSH5CI) with no additives. When following labeled instructions, sprayed skin can reach a temperature in the approximate range of -11C - 4C.
Gebauer’s Ethyl Chloride® is available in the ACCU-STREAM 360™ with Sure Lock Technology™. This innovative delivery system allows health care professionals to easily spray the treatment site from almost any angle - even upside down. An easy-to-use safety locking ring prevents accidental spraying. The ACCU-STREAM 360 actuator streamlines the application process, enhancing patient comfort.
Published clinical trial results support the use in children 3 years of age and older. Ethyl chloride is FLAMMABLE and should never be used in the presence of an open flame or electrical cautery equipment. Use in a well-ventilated area. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating or inhaling the contents can be harmful or fatal. Do not spray in eyes. Over application of the product may lead to frostbite and/or altered skin pigmentation. Cutaneous sensitization may occur, but appears to be extremely rare. CAUTION: Federal law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a licensed healthcare practitioner.
