Location: C160
Presentation CE Credits: 1

We have an ever closing window of opportunity to save our patients life. The average time for Intraosseous needle insertion is 9-18 seconds. Is spending unnecessary time on gaining venous access in our patients best interest? Are you competent and comfortable inserting IO's? What are the current recommendations in regards to IO placement. Have you ever said to yourself "If I can't get access, we will have to put in a IO"? Have you ever been in a line placement for hours and its been unsuccessful? The why, when and how is the IO in the best interest of our patients will be discussed in this session.
