Buzzy uses natural pain relief by confusing your body's own nerves and distracting attention away from the poke, thereby dulling or eliminating sharp pain. In the same way that rubbing a bumped elbow helps stop the hurt, or cool running water soothes a burn, Buzzy bypasses sharp pain.
In an emergency department, nurses and doctors can get too busy to wait for numbing creams for needle procedures. For newly diagnosed diabetic children, the medical community has a history of expecting kids to just get used to needle pain. For shots, for bee stings, for boo-boos, for injected medicines,… for all acute pain management, we developed Buzzy to put instant pain management in YOUR hands.
A pilot trial in adults for IV starts (Clinical Journal of Pain, October 2009) found that Buzzy significantly decreased needle pain. A trial in children needing IV starts in the emergency department also showed significantly decreased pain by child and parent report. Buzzy has been used for dentistry, travel immunizations, fertility shots, and finger pricks, splinter removal, and flu injection.
