Clinical Use

More and more dialysis patients are choosing home dialysis over in-center treatment. Whether at home or in-center, Buzzy® helps patients and dialysis techs for pain relief during access for dialysis.


Place Buzzy® and ice wings proximal to the access area. The rounded end of Buzzy® should be 3-5 cm proximal to the site. Turn Buzzy® on and leave in place and vibrating throughout access. For deeper desensitization to tissues below the skin, and when vasoconstriction is not an issue, we recommend Buzzy® be left in place 30 – 60 seconds prior to access; ice adds about 60% of the pain relief.
