Exocol – Say Goodbye to Painful Injections
Lincoln, RI, US, June 9, 2022 / EINPresswire.com/ – EXOCOOL – Farewell to painful injections
In the past years, the field of medicine has made great strides. We’ve been tested left, right, and center with new diseases and new variants of pathogens that already exist, winning time after time. One example that quickly comes to mind is vaccination. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), vaccination prevents 2-3 million deaths each year. The role of vaccination in our pediatric population cannot be underestimated. However, it has been shown that fear of needles may wane in vaccination rates. This presented a new problem that the medical world could not solve until recently with the introduction of Exocool.
I dare say Exocool, God’s gift to children. It seems to be a device from the future that exists in our present. Since its inception, it has helped revolutionize the field of medicine in ways rarely seen before. A study showed that children in hospitals reported needle procedures as the most fearful and painful experience they had (Hart & Bossert, 1994). Another study showed that fear of needle procedures may cause children to resort to avoidance behavior in order not to be pricked (Kortesluoma & Nikkonen, 2004). That is why this revolutionary device was built. With Exocool, you say goodbye to pain and fear of needles.
The product weighs only 120 grams. It operates at temperatures from -20 to 50 degrees Celsius. It is only used for 4-6 seconds for sensitive skin and 8-10 seconds for normal skin. Its battery capacity allows it to be used more than 2500 times. The product material is made of first-class medical aluminum alloy and ABS plastic. It has a cooling reduction rate of 0.5°C per minute at room temperature with the lid on and 0.7°C without the lid. The recommended cooling temperature is -12°C. The minimum cooling time is approximately 30 to 45 minutes. It has several indicator lights. A green light means the device is ready for use and at the optimum temperature. A blue light indicates that the device is too cold to use, and it also has a risk of severe burn. The red light indicates that it is not ready for anesthesia and should remain at -12°C.
The device uses cryonumbing technology which is an effective strategy to relieve injection pain in patients. Cryonumbing is simply the use of extremely cold temperatures to numb an area of the body. This device works by numbing nerve cells at the injection site at -9°C. The device takes only about 4-6 seconds to numb the neurons in a person with sensitive skin and about 8-10 seconds in a person with normal skin. It has a metal tip made of medical grade aluminum alloy. Among its many benefits is that it is gentle on the skin and can be used on all skin types. One may be concerned about its contents and whether or not it may lead to hypersensitivity. These concerns can be put to bed as Exocool is as safe as it gets. First of all, it is non-surgical, and is used only on the skin. Second, it contains no chemicals – so you don’t have to worry about hypersensitivity.
Its application has been noted in various fields. Most notably, pediatrics. Babies and infants notice that their skin is more sensitive to pain than adults. Also, children are more afraid of needle sticks. In one study, 63% of children aged 6-17 years reported a fear of needles, as well as an increase in pain intensity observed during vaccination (Taddio et al., 2012). In a large sample of immunized children, self-reported fear of needles was strongly scored in 68% of 6- to 8-year-olds, 65% of 9- to 12-year-olds, and 51% of children aged 6 to 8 years Those aged between 13 and 17 years (Taddio et al., 2012). Exacerbating sensitive skin with a fear of needles makes it nearly impossible to prick babies and the story always ends in pain and tears. Using Exocool for this group of patients will make their journey to the doctor less intimidating.
It is also used in cosmetics. When a patient undergoes any cosmetic procedure, he is also sure that he will be a victim of needle prick. Patients of all ages pursue non-surgical cosmetic procedures, and it is the responsibility of the medical practitioner to select the most appropriate intervention(s) based on age, physical need, concern, extent and location, to improve patient satisfaction. Being an adult does not make you immune to trypanophobia (fear of needles). Cosmetic procedures such as Botox injections, face and eyebrow lifts, and hair transplants involve the use of acupuncture. Repeated use of these injections leads to severe pain and can also lead to inflammation. Exocool helps stop the pain. Thus, it is easier for people to pursue beauty
A large number of the population who will benefit from Exocool are diabetics. Most patients with type 1 diabetes rely on daily injections as a source of treatment. For others, the injections are several times a day. They have to undergo this every day of their lives. In a study of children aged four to sixteen with type 1 diabetes, 40.9% reported injection-related fear, and 22.7% reported associated pain. Moreover, children with diabetes and those under 9 years of age reported a higher frequency (75%) of injection fear than older children at 21.4% (Howe et al., 2011). The same applies to adults. Exocool acts as a life-changing device for people who are pricked with a needle every day. It helps patients numb the area before the injection, which makes the injection painless and greatly reduces the chances of inflammation.
