Gebauer's Ethyl Chloride® instant topical anesthetic skin refrigerant (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® 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.
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® 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. Inhalation should be avoided as it may produce narcotic and general anesthetic effects and may produce deep anesthesia, fatal coma or cardiac arrest. Do not spray in eyes. Over spraying may cause frostbite. Freezing may alter skin pigmentation. The thawing process may be painful, and freezing may lower resistance to infection and delay healing. Cutaneous sensitization may occur, but appears to be extremely rare. Long-term exposure may cause liver or kidney damage. CAUTION: Federal law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a licensed healthcare practitioner.
