Intraosseous Line Course

Intraosseous line placement is an alternative to central venous access.  The intraosseous line placement course will teach clinicians how to use the EZ-IO drill to place intraosseous lines in the proximal tibia, distal tibia and proximal humerus using simulated bones.  The course covers the indications for intraosseous line insertion including difficult venous access, vasopressor therapy and the need for immediate venous access. Technique and contraindications to intraosseous access will be taught as well as removing intraosseous needles.

Our IO line placement training is a component of our live Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures CME course which teaches clinicians how to perform the 20 most essential procedures needed to work in the ER, ICU, and hospital wards
