Observation of Intraosseous Vascular Access in the Emergency Department
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use of powered intraosseous vascular access (EZ-IO by Vidacare) in the emergency department for patients requiring urgent vascular access. Data collected will be compared to historical data on central venous catheter use in the emergency department. The primary hypothesis is that powered intraosseous vascular access will decrease the amount of time needed to obtain vascular access.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||An Observational Study of Intraosseous Vascular Access Compared to Central Venous Catheters in the Emergency Department|
- Time to vascular access [ Time Frame: at time of patient's arrival to emergency department, average within 10 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Time from opening intraosseous device packaging to initial infusion of drugs or fluids via the intraosseous route.
- Incidence of complications with intraosseous device [ Time Frame: time subject has intraosseous vascular access, an average of 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Reported complications by intraosseous device operators.
