Thanks to Joan for http://www.donjoy.com/products/featpainbuster.html  but especially to [log in to unmask] for the reference that probably my requestor had in mind:

It was worth the exercise just to re-learn that Infotrac is a good place to look for product names!  I'm not sure I realized that there was a specific field for "products" and think that in the future there will be other occasions to use this. Thanks to you both.

Colleagues,
I'm trying to find information on "pain buster" (PainBuster? Pain-Buster?), specifically for controlling post-shoulder surgery pain . The requestor seems to recall an article in a fairly recent "Nursing2001-like" journal, but I am not turning up anything via PubMed or even in scanning this year's Nursing 2001. 

In a Forbes.com article there is talk of a recent clinical study published from the U Iowa's Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center, although that is for gyn cancer pain (of course the reference is not given). Otherwise, there is quite a bit of information on this product retrieved using Google, but it is primarily business and investor-related and not  clinical enough. 

Ring any bells?

Ever hopeful... and many thanks.
