As an emergency medical professional, you’ve seen it all while on-scene: patients experiencing shock, severe dehydration, cardiac arrest, major trauma, airway compromise, and more. PerSys Medical, a leading innovator of emergency-medical products for first responders worldwide, has once again developed a life-saving product that is specifically designed to handle the aforementioned ailments: the new PerSys Go IO Intraosseous Start Kit.
Regarding patients with the above-mentioned conditions, studies have shown that IO infusion is quick and has a higher success rate over administering fluids and medications during initial resuscitation, insertion of a central venous catheter, or insertion of an ultrasound-guided, peripheral venous catheter. Moreover, in patients experiencing cardiac arrest, IO infusion does not require stopping cardiopulmonary resuscitation, which greatly improves the patient’s overall survival rate.
This is where the effectiveness of the PerSys Go IO Intraosseous Start Kit is fully realized: It contains all the essential medical supplies needed to establish immediate IO access during emergencies. The uniquely clover-shaped NIO Fixation™’s durability under adverse conditions is formidable, allowing it to firmly adhere to skin, regardless of any environmental hindrances, namely water, sweat, or debris. All while allowing simple, secure IO stabilization. Its advantageous design enables ample flexibility and adaptability to various IO-insertion sites, such as the cylindrical-shaped humeral head, all while effectively preventing potential dislodgement.
The PerSys Go IO Intraosseous Start Kit’s Secure IV™ is lightweight and compact enough to fit inside any paramedic kit, but its useful features make it an ideal tool during challenging emergencies: Being able to rapidly achieve and maintain vascular access prior to transport is vital to successful casualty stabilization. It functions as an IV-constricting band, along with an IO/IV-securing device, which enables quick, easy IV access while preventing accidental line pulls. Simply adjust its easy-to-use, flexible Velcro® strap to secure an IO/IV line on wrists, arms, or legs. Similar to the NIO Fixation™, the Secure IV™ is effective on wet, sweaty, or even dirty skin.
Other essential supplies include:
- two alcohol prep pads – local antiseptic
- IO drill adapter
- -90-degree-angle luer lock
- patient wristbands to log important, patient-related medical information
- one extension set with three-way stopcock
