When Vascular Access Presents a Challenge, Go Directly to the Bone
EZ-IO® provides rapid, smooth entry into the bone’s medullary cavity, creating an immediate conduit to the central circulation. The intraosseous (IO) space is a specialized area of the vascular system where blood flow is rapid and continues even during shock. Drugs and fluids infused via the intraosseous route reach the central circulation as quickly as those administered through standard IV access.
The EZ-IO needle sets contains 5, 15GA needles that are constructed with 304-stainless steel and includes a patented cutting tip. Insertion is gentle, fast and relatively painless, and is particularly beneficial for casualties that may require multiple IV sticks to obtain vascular access for medication. All Needle Sets come sealed in a hard canister and are accompanied with: 5 Needles, 5 EZ-Connects®, and 5 Wrist Bands and Directions for Use.
45 mm LD Needle Set (Box of 5, Yellow Hub)
Designed for patients weighing more than 85 lbs. or for those who have excessive tissue over the targeted insertion site (e.g. edema, large musculature, obesity). The 45mm LD Needle Set provides the length to effectively gain access to the intraosseous space on most patients and is ideal for the humerus site.
