Emergency Decompressive Craniostomy "Burr Hole" Using an Intraosseous Vascular Access System in a Resource-Limited Setting: A Technical Report on a Cadaver.

Cureus 2022 Apr 23;14(4):e24420. Epub 2022 Apr 23.

Emergency Medicine, Envision Physician Services, Fort Lauderdale, USA.

This paper describes an alternative approach to emergency burr hole evacuation of epidural hematoma using the intraosseous (IO) vascular access system. The IO vascular access system is commonly available in the Emergency Department. We demonstrate that it can be used in rare situations where immediate neurosurgical intervention and the standard cranial drill and brace are not available for burr hole craniostomy. Read More

Can Non-Physician Providers Use Ultrasound to Aid in Establishing Peripheral IV Access in Patients Who are Difficult to Cannulate? A Scoping Review.

Prehosp Disaster Med 2022 May 20:1-12. Epub 2022 May 20.

Ambulance Victoria, Doncaster, Victoria, Australia.

Introduction: Non-physician performed point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) is emerging as a diagnostic adjunct with the potential to enhance current practice. The scope of POCUS utility is broad and well-established in-hospital, yet limited research has occurred in the out-of-hospital environment. Many physician-based studies expound the value of POCUS in the acute setting as a therapeutic and diagnostic tool. Read More

Comparison of intraosseous and intravenous iodinated contrast administration for CT imaging in Hispaniolan Amazon parrots (Amazona ventralis).

Vet Radiol Ultrasound 2022 May 16. Epub 2022 May 16.

Louisiana State University College of Veterinary Medicine, Veterinary Clinical Sciences, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA.

Establishing and maintaining intravenous access for contrast medium during CT imaging can be difficult in birds due to their small size and thin walled vessels. Intraosseous (IO) catheters are an alternative to intravenous catheters and are often used for fluid or medication administration in birds. To determine the feasibility of IO iodinated contrast enhancement for CT in birds, 10 adult Hispaniolan Amazon parrots (Amazona ventralis) weighing 260-325 g, were enrolled in a prospective randomized blinded crossover group study to evaluate the differences in contrast route administration.

Physician preferences associated with powered intraosseous access systems: Safety features, reliability, and ease of use.

J Am Coll Emerg Physicians Open 2022 Jun 29;3(3):e12710. Epub 2022 Apr 29.

Department of Emergency Medicine AdventHealth Orlando Orlando Florida USA.

Objective: This study evaluated physician preferences and values related to the most commonly used (traditional) powered intraosseous (IO) system and a novel powered IO system featuring a passive safety needle, battery life indicator, and snap-securement/skin attachment.

Determining Intraosseous Needle Placement Using Point-of-Care Ultrasound in a Swine (Sus scrofa) Model.

Mil Med 2022 Apr 27. Epub 2022 Apr 27.

Clinical Investigation Department, Combat Trauma Research Group, Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, Portsmouth, VA 23708, USA.

Objective: Intraosseous (IO) access is critical in resuscitation, providing rapid access when peripheral vascular attempts fail. Unfortunately, misplacement commonly occurs, leading to possible fluid extravasation and tissue necrosis. Current research exploring the utility of bedside ultrasound in confirming IO line placement is limited by small sample sizes of skeletally immature subjects or geriatric cadaveric models. Read More

Fluid Therapy for Pediatric Patients.

Vet Clin North Am Small Anim Pract 2022 May;52(3):707-718

VETgirl, 2950 Busch Lake Boulevard, Tampa, FL 33614, USA.

Pediatric dogs and cats within their first 12 weeks of life have important electrolyte requirements and physiologic considerations that may impact fluid therapy. Fluid requirements are higher in pediatrics, while fluid losses are greater due to underdeveloped physiologic responses. Hydration and volume status are difficult to assess in young animals, and their small size makes intravenous (IV) access difficult to obtain. Read More

David Tvildiani Medical University, Tbilisi, Georgia.

The introduction of intraosseous injection methodology is very important in critically ill patients, with whom peripheral venous catheterization is impossible and there is not enough time to access a central vein due to a life-threatening condition of the patient. To carry out the relevant methodology in Georgia, for the first time in 2016 and then in 2017, the USA Mayo Clinic Emergency Care Physicians held trainings in Intraosseous Catheterization, which included both theoretical (indications, contraindications, complications, etc.) and practical trainings (techniques for using a special tool on manikin bone).

Clinical Management of Intraosseous Access in Adults in Critical Situations for Health Professionals.

Healthcare (Basel) 2022 Feb 14;10(2). Epub 2022 Feb 14.

Nursing and Physiotherapy Department, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Castilla-La Mancha, Talavera de la Reina (Toledo), 45600 Toledo, Spain.

There are health professionals who are unaware of the ideal management of the intraosseous route, despite the fact that it has been scientifically considered an alternative to the peripheral venous route when the patient is in critical condition. Thanks to continuous development, there has been a need to provide emergency services with materials that manage to provide satisfactory care, despite the difficulties faced by health personnel.

Objectives: The objective of this systematic bibliographic review is to update the theoretical and practical knowledge and strategies for the insertion and proper management of the intraosseous route as an emergency vascular access for nursing professionals. Read More

Cureus 2022 Jan 10;14(1):e21080. Epub 2022 Jan 10.

Research and Development, Ontario Tech University, Oshawa, CAN.

Vascular access is an essential and rate-limiting step during pediatric resuscitation efforts. Intraosseous (IO) access, an effective resuscitative strategy, remains underutilized in emergency departments. Many medical graduates report never performing the procedure before graduation, and it has been recommended that continuing education and in-servicing programs be implemented to increase the use and familiarity of IO access.

A Novel Approach for More Effective Emergency Equipment Storage: The Task-Based Package-Organized Neonatal Emergency Backpack.

Front Pediatr 2021 23;9:771396. Epub 2021 Dec 23.

Department of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, Division of Neonatology, Pediatric Intensive Care and Neuropediatrics, Comprehensive Center for Pediatrics, Medical University Vienna, Vienna, Austria.

To evaluate a new task-based package-organized (TPO) neonatal emergency backpack and to compare it to the classical (ABC- and material-based) backpack. Simulation-based assessment of time to retrieve equipment for three different tasks [intraosseous access (IO), intubation and adrenaline administration] using the TPO and the classical emergency backpack was compared. Equipment retrieval times for the three tasks were assessed for 24 nurses (12 intermediate care, 12 intensive care) and were significantly faster in the TPO than in the classical backpack (IO 33 vs. Read More
