Post #2 in the 7 Reasons to Choose Sternal IO for EMS and Hospital Critical Care Series
In a new eBook, Dr. Alan Moloff explores the seven key reasons that the sternal route for intraosseous infusion is the best choice for both Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and hospital critical care teams. You can download the full eBook at: go.pyng.com/7-reasons-sternal-io
1. Clinical Evidence Supports the Sternal IO Route
Clinical Studies Indicate the Sternal IO Route Improves Patient Outcomes
Current Guidelines (AHA, etc.) indicate that Intraosseous infusion (IO) is a rapid, safe and effective alternative to IV (intravenous) infusion for the administration of fluids and medications.
Recent studies highlight that IO may be particularly important to get critical medications into the central circulation faster, and in higher concentrations, during cardiac arrest.
Clinical Data Suggests that Pelvic Stabilization Devices Improve Patient Outcomes as Compared to Bed Sheets
If you are still using bedsheets to stabilize your pelvic trauma patients, it may be time to consider another option: Pelvic Stabilization Devices.
So why is it time to say goodbye to the bedsheet? The simple answer is because they just don’t work as well as pelvic stabilization devices. In fact, clinical data from four recent studies strongly indicates that your patient outcomes will improve if you throw those bedsheets away and invest in new devices that are specifically designed to stabilize the pelvic region.
