Patients who avoid needed medical care due to needle phobia can face their fears - and even reduce fainting risk - with Buzzy.

I would go for lab work, they would stick me multiple times, I would faint-terrible experience. All I want to say is THANK YOU! No more panic, no more fainting, and now they can draw my blood easily.”
— Maria S., Buzzy customer

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, USA, June 1, 2023/ -- There is new hope for people who struggle with needle procedures. From needle phobia to vasovagal responses (fainting) and difficult vein access, blood work causes anxiety, pain, and discomfort. Buzzy is a Class 1 medical device with CE marking. The patented, non-combination, needle pain solution used in over 45 million needle procedures has just added new FDA 510(k) indications for use — controlling needle pain for lab draws and blood work.

A study by the CDC and Duke University presented at the Pediatric Academic Societies meeting in May 2023 reported Buzzy significantly reduced severe symptoms of lightheadedness, nausea, and weakness by 25%.* The results from this study could expand accessibility to individuals previously deterred from seeking medical care due to a vasovagal response.

“I have always been deadly scared of blood work. I would put off getting physicals because lab work was associated with them. When I would go for lab work, they would stick me multiple times, I would faint - terrible experience. All I want to say is THANK YOU! No more panic, no more fainting, and now they can draw my blood easily.” - Maria S.

Immunology, asthma, and allergy patients, in particular, experience more than their fair share of needle procedures. Adding a monthly, weekly, or even daily shot routine can be especially disruptive. Buzzy helps with infusion therapy and subcutaneous injections, whether in the hospital or at home.

“Healthcare professionals get used to needles, so they have trouble imagining that a patient might reject lifesaving injections,” Dr. Amy Baxter reported. “Some will refuse a superior biologic solution, and some are simply too fatigued from injected or infused treatments to continue. Buzzy helps people get the right treatment and stick with it.”

Approximately one in four adults and over 60% of adolescents experience needle fear.** This fear impacts all aspects of healthcare. It prevents people from seeking necessary treatment. It impacts blood banks relying on donations for life-saving procedures. It even impacts the development of life-saving medications like biologics, which rely on plasma donations. With the expanded indications beyond the more general clearances for injections, venipuncture, and IV starts, Pain Care Labs is transforming healthcare practices and empowering medical professionals and patients.

The Company will exhibit from 9 - 11 June at the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) Hybrid Congress 2023, in Hamburg, Germany. The EAACI connects physicians and industry experts with the goal of improving patient outcomes. Pain Care Labs is currently expanding Buzzy into clinical practices via patient support starter kit initiatives and tailored product launches.
