The next generation of IO has arrived.
Time is of the essence. Rapidly administering fluid and medication during resuscitation can be critical, but sometimes normal peripheral intravenous (IV) access is not an option. Alternatives like central venous catheterization or venous cut-down are time-consuming and challenging in the best of situations, and most pre-hospital and hospital medical personnel are not equipped or trained to perform these procedures. Intraosseous (IO) infusion can be the answer.
(Currently unavailable in your country. Please contact Pyng for more information.)
FASTx™ Sternal Intraosseous Device from Pyng is the next generation of IO, giving emergency care providers the critical ability to quickly establish vascular access when normal peripheral intravenous access fails. FASTx™ Sternal IO enables users to rapidly and easily deliver emergency fluids and medications into the vascular system through the bone marrow of the manubrium. Safe to use in patients 12 years of age and older, FASTx™ can be effectively used during CPR and when a cervical spine collar is in place.
Any fluids or medications that can be administered by IV can also be administered by IO. As an accepted standard of care and treatment modality, IO infusion is endorsed by the American Heart Association, Advanced Trauma Life Support, and Advanced Cardiac Life Support courses, as well as the European Resuscitation Council. IO is also taught as part of military medicine training and Tactical Combat Casualty Care guidelines.
