A hospital in Denver, Colorado is making use of a new technology that lessons the pinch of needle injections. The Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center are using technology “that involves a small J-Tip that is fueled by a small blast of CO2, which in turn hits the surface of the skin with a small amount of numbing agent,” according to a local FOX news report.

The numbing agent works in just a few minutes and allows medical professionals to draw blood or administer vaccinations/medication without the pain typically felt by the needle prick.
