Havel's Incorporated Expands Successful EchoStim(R) Ultrasound Needles into Canada

    Havel's partners with Canadian Hospital Specialties, to release
EchoStim(R) and EchoBlock(R) Ultrasound needles in Canada

    CINCINNATI, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Havel's Incorporated, a
Cincinnati-based distributor of unique needle devices, has partnered with CHS,
Canadian Hospital Specialties, which will become the exclusive distributor of
Havel's EchoStim(R) and EchoBlock(R) Ultrasound Needles throughout Canada.

    Canadian Hospital Specialties Ltd. is a leading supplier of regional
anesthesia products to healthcare facilities and clinics across Canada.  Its
Med-Rx(R) brand is well recognized as being an innovative family of products,
focused on quality and value.  Scott Lees, Vice President, Sales and Marketing
for Canadian Hospital Specialties shares Havel's excitement about the
expansion.  "The EchoStim(R) and EchoBlock(R) Needles provide best in class
technology to our customers in the rapidly expanding ultrasound guided
regional anesthesia market. We are thrilled to be the exclusive representative
of these products here in Canada," says Lees.

    The EchoStim(R) and EchoBlock(R) needles offer ground-breaking technology
for ultrasound guided regional anesthesia.  Both feature patented corner cube
reflectors (CCR(TM)) providing multiple angled surfaces near the tip for
maximum reflection even at steep injection angles.  Equipped with a standard
plug that fits most nerve stimulators, the EchoStim(R) Echogenic Insulated
Needle can be used with or without ultrasound guidance.  The EchoBlock(R)
Echogenic Non-Insulated Needle has fixed injection tubing, and is used under
ultrasound guidance by those no longer using nerve stimulators.  The EchoStim
Collection of needles provides healthcare workers with a more visible needle
tip, making procedures safer for patients and easier for practitioners.

    Since 1981, Havel's has served the needs of physicians, healthcare
professionals and purchasing managers with high quality specialty needles and
