Wings will stay frozen 10 minutes at room temperature. For best pain relief, the wings must be frozen solid to avoid absorbing vibration.
For the mini, place the hole in the ice wings over the hook on the back of Buzzy. For the XL, slide the ice wings through the elastic strap on the back of Buzzy.
Once Buzzy is being held in place either by a strap, tourniquet, or by hand, press the button or switch on the top of Buzzy. The Buzzy Mini has an automatic shut-off feature after 3 minutes.
Place Buzzy directly on the site of the injection for 30-60 seconds, then move up (with power switch up/farthest away from site) and hold/secure. Buzzy works best when it’s between the pain and the brain.
Buzzy® and healthcare wings are reusable. They should be cleaned with alcohol based cleaning wipes or by following your facility’s infection control protocol for non-critical equipment such as stethoscopes or patient monitors. Do not autoclave. Do not immerse in liquid. Healthcare wings are the only wings that can be cleaned between patients. Soft-sided wings should be disposed after use.
