        Safety


        Helping you to ensure the safety of patients and healthcare providers is our top priority

        Reducing needlestick injuries

        Needlestick injuries are an ongoing safety hazard to healthcare providers, causing fear, anxiety and emotional distress in workers2,3 and costing the hospital up to $3,766 on average per exposure.2

        BD™ Intraosseous Needles are the only IO needles that feature an integrated passive needle tip safety designed to protect against needlestick injuries. So, the BD™ Intraosseous Vascular Access System can protect healthcare workers from inadvertent needlesticks, that are especially common in emergent settings:

        • Aligned with INS Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice that recommend “the use of passive safety-engineered devices for needlestick injury prevention”4
        • Complies with ISO standards and guidance by FDA for sharps injury prevention5,6
        • Integrated passive needle tip safety is available on all five needle sizes.

        Safe IO access insertions

        Unsuccessful insertions increase delays in treatment, reduce patient satisfaction and significantly increase risk of complications.7 Over 33% of adults and up to 50% of children who present to a hospital and require a PIVC are reported to have difficult venous access (DVA), making first-attempt success harder to achieve.8

        The BD™ Intraosseous Powered Driver is designed with innovations to safely accommodate insertions for all patients:

        • Enabling IO access in both adult and pediatric patients when IV access is difficult or impossible to obtain in emergent, urgent, or medically necessary cases for up to 24 hours
        • Rechargeable battery that lasts up to 12× longer than the non-rechargeable Teleflex EZ-IO1 for confidence and reliability
        • Securement device helps prevent dislodgement of the IO cannula

         

        Our clinical experts, backed with tools like the IO Competency Checklist and the Clinical Presentation can help your facility safely upgrade to the BD™ Intraosseous Vascular Access System.

        Reliability


        Giving you the confidence of being ready to perform an IO access procedure any time

        Reliable access every time

        IO access is a reliable bridging method to gain vascular access for in-hospital adult emergency patients under trauma or medical resuscitation with impossible peripheral IV access.9

        The BD™ Intraosseous Vascular Access System is a high-quality and reliable device with innovations you can count on every time:

        • Long-lasting rechargeable battery in the BD™ Intraosseous Powered Driver with 12x more total battery life than the non-rechargeable Teleflex EZ-IO1
        • Powered driver stops immediately upon releasing the trigger

        Ready to work when you need it

        Time and performance are critical in the ED and EMS settings, often requiring life-saving decisions to be made in seconds.

        The BD™ Intraosseous Vascular Access System is designed with multiple visual indicators, so you can be confident that the device is powered and ready for an IO access procedure:

        • Easy recharging with Micro-USB charge socket enables you to know the BD™ Intraosseous Powered Driver is ready to use exactly when needed
        • Multi-light battery indicator on the BD™ Intraosseous Powered Driver provides instant identification of battery charge status

        Performance


        Enabling you to be more comfortable and efficient for every IO access procedure

        Increased control, in your hands

        Ergonomics and ease of use are not just nice-to-have features—they are factors that can impact control and efficiency in clinical procedures.

        The BD™ Intraosseous Vascular Access System is an easy-to-use device with innovations designed to improve user experience:

        • The BD™ Intraosseous Powered Driver is ergonomically designed for user comfort
        • Can accommodate larger hands more comfortably
        • Gripped ergonomic handle of the BD™ Intraosseous Manual Driver is designed to increase controlled insertion into the vascular space
        • Snap-on feature of the securement device allows it to be placed independently of the extension set, eliminating the need to disconnect and reconnect the extension set

         

        Our experts can offer product in-service training and learning sessions to help your clinicians improve their technique and proficiency in IO access.

        Benefits

        More speed in IO procedures

        While the skill and experience of the clinician play a large role in successful placements, product design can reduce procedural steps and improve clinical efficiency.

        The BD™ Intraosseous Vascular Access System is designed with features to help users minimize IO procedure steps without compromising on stability and safety:

        • Powered driver with rechargeable battery for faster IO placement than impact-driven methods.
        • BD™ Intraosseous Manual Driver is designed to allow continual insertion avoiding the need to reposition the hand during the procedure.
        • Securement device allows stabilization of the IO device at multiple angles and minimizes procedure steps compared to Teleflex EZ-IO.
        • Snap-on feature of the securement device allows the IO device to be placed independently of the extension set, eliminating the need to disconnect and reconnect the extension set.
        • BD MaxZero™ Extension Set with BD MaxZero™ Needle-free Connector provides access for infusions and can be disinfected in just 3 seconds, enabling ongoing infusion of medication to patients and optimized performance for clinicians. 
        • Color-coded needle packaging to quickly communicate needle length.

        About

        Lead the change to become proficient in the next generation of IO access

        IO access is recommended by multiple professional industry associations—such as the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP),10 the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA),11 the American Heart Association (AHA),12 the Infusion Nurses Society (INS)13 and the National Association of EMS Physicians (NAEMSP)14,15—for situations where care is compromised without rapid vascular access and IV access is not available.

        ACEP Policy Statement
        There are situations in the emergency department when intravenous access procedures fail or are insufficient to meet the clinical needs of the patient. Alternative access methods must be available under such circumstances and their usage should be a part of the emergency medicine practice privileges. These alternate access modalities include, but are not limited to, intraosseous lines.10

        INS Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice 2021
        IO access has a reported high rate of first-time insertion success with low complications. Insertion of an IO device may avoid delays to delivery of necessary medication and fluid. [...] Anticipate use of the IO route in the event of adult or pediatric cardiac arrest if IV access is not available or cannot be obtained quickly. Pediatric advanced life support guidelines recommend the use of the IO route as the initial vascular access route in case of cardiac arrest.13

        NAEMSP Position Statement for Out-of-Hospital Settings
        IO access may be appropriate for primary vascular access in select cases.14 In out-of-hospital environments, IO access may provide significant time savings that could benefit patients in emergent situations by decreasing the time required to achieve access and the time required to administer the necessary fluids and medications.15
