In this review of clinical data and user experiences, Dr. Moloff makes the case for using the sternal intraosseous infusion route for vascular access.
The Pyng Medical team is at the Special Operations Medical Association Scientific Assembly (SOMSA) in Charlotte, NC this week demonstrating their trauma and resuscitation products specifically designed for the military.
The FASTTactical Sternal Intraosseous Infusion Device was Endorsed as a Top New Product of 2016 by the Journal of Emergency Medical Services.
One of the clinical studies reviewed by Dr. Alan Moloff in his new clinical review paper is “An Evidence Based Prehospital Guideline for External Hemorrhage Control by Eileen M. Bulger, MD et al. as published in the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma.
Tourniquets have had a turbulent history, and have even been at times considered the medical device and hemostatic technique of last resort. Most of the negative studies and adverse commentary around tourniquet usage is based on old battlefield reports dating back to WWI and WWII. However, these negative studies have now proven to be mostly anecdotal, with reported adverse clinical outcomes due to many confounding variables, and not directly attributable to the actual use of a tourniquet.
Despite the positive results of several military studies on the benefits and safety of tourniquet usage, and the recommendation of civilian organizations, the adoption of tourniquets by civilian EMS and other responders is still low. Recent studies on the usage of tourniquets in a prehospital civilian setting, in addition to military studies, demonstrate that tourniquets are safe and they save lives.
