Seattle, WA, September 05, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Blink Device Company announced today that it has partnered with KCPMED to introduce TwitchView, a new quantitative train-of-four monitor for neuromuscular blockade, to the Korean market.
“We’ve had an overwhelmingly positive response from anesthesiologists and CRNAs using the TwitchView in the U.S.,” said CEO Justin Hulvershorn, M.D, Ph.D. “Based on our initial experience, we strongly believe this next generation technology will rapidly find its way into operating rooms all over the world. We are actively seeking established, international partners that sell best-in-class products to help us achieve this goal. KCPMED, which represents market leading anesthesia products like Covidien’s BIS™ Monitors and Teleflex’s® Arrow® Catheter Line, is precisely that kind of partner.”
CEO Randy Choi said, “For over 40 years, KCPMED has worked closely with our country’s leading anesthesiologists to identify premier medical technologies and bring them to Korea. The recognition of residual paralysis as a serious safety hazard and the need for better prevention has become an area of focus by Anesthesia Societies. Given TwitchView’s ground-breaking design, intuitive user interface, and impressive performance, we see this device as an excellent tool to support the effort to eliminate this serious and ongoing safety risk to patients.”
