Plane blocks like TAP, QL, ESP etc. are gaining momentum and are a valuable alternative to Epidural Anesthesia or General Anesthesia. However, especially those blocks rely solely on users experience and needle shaft and tip echogenicity.
With SonoTAP, Pajunk has developed a special plane block needle for ultrasound guidance only. Like the SonoPlex the SonoTAP also includes the patented Cornerstone Reflectors for best needle echogenicity possible, irrespective of the insertion angle.
