RX Coudé® and RX-2™ Coudé® Epidural Introducer Needles

RX2-Coude5

Epimed develops and manufactures several versions of specialty epidural needles. Our needles are designed to reduce the risk of potential needle-catheter complications, such as catheter shearing. Our line of epidural needles includes the patented RX Coudé®, RX-2 along with the FIC, and R.K.™ needles. The needles are radiopaque with visible depth markings and have printed arrows on the hub indicating the direction of the bevel to assist in placement.

RX-2 Coudé®

The patented RX-2™ Needles are created with a blunt, obturating stylet that extends beyond the tip of the needle to protect the cutting edge during placement or rotation. These needles are radiopaque with visible depth markings and have printed arrows on the hub to indicate the direction of the curve and bevel. All RX-2™ Coudé® Epidural Needles are packaged with attachable wings.
