Whitepaper Preview: ON-Q vs. Exparel for Pain Management

Executives from I-Flow will be at booth #101 to discuss findings of a new Frost & Sullivan whitepaper, documenting clinician perspective that ON-Q delivers superior pain control over the full length of the post-operative period – and at a lower cost – compared to Exparel.

Findings from the research include:

  • According to anesthesiologists involved in the research, the actual duration of pain relief for Exparel was significantly shorter than marketed – 25 versus 72 hours. While Exparel provided better pain relief up to 12 hours, ON-Q provided superior pain relief from that point forward up to 96 hours, making it the ideal choice for longer-term pain management.
  • The anesthesiologists surveyed indicated that they experienced a greater reduction in narcotic use when using ON-Q, with 58 percent experiencing a major reduction, compared to just 35 percent for Exparel.
  • Hospitals are performing a greater percentage of orthopedic surgery cases using ON-Q (37 percent) and a lower percentage using Exparel (31 percent). Anesthesiologists reported the highest percentage of orthopedic cases (39 percent) using ON-Q.
