Which intraosseous device is best for the prehospital setting?

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialOtherpeer-review

Abstract

A short cut review was carried out to establish which intraosseous device is best for use in the prehospital environment. A total of 2100 papers were found using the reported search, of which 2 represented the best evidence to answer the clinical question. The author, date and country of publication, patient group studied, study type, relevant outcomes, results, and study weaknesses of these best papers are tabulated. The clinical bottom line is that traditional manual intraosseous infusion devices have better success rates and faster insertion times compared with semi-automatic intraosseous infusion devices in the prehospital setting.
