Next Generation of Award-Winning EZ-IO Vascular Access System Showcased at EMS Today
(SAN ANTONIO) –Vidacare, the leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of intraosseous technology with its award-winning EZ-IO Vascular Access System, has introduced a next-generation power-driver and needle set to their line of vascular access products for medical use. In use by over 50 percent of all ambulances in the United States, the EZ-IO System uses its patented power driver and bevel-tipped needle sets for quick and controlled access to the interior bone for the infusion of vital fluids and medications in seconds. The EZ-IO System is available when traditional vascular access is difficult or impossible.
The new G3 Power Driver is lightweight, rugged, compact and air-worthy, enabling the practical use of reliable IO access in difficult emergency situations. It is capable of at least 750 insertions and has a shelf life of ten years.
In addition, Vidacare has released the new LD needle set to better provide access to patients with significant body mass. The 45 mm set provides enough length to gain vascular access when the 25 mm AD Needle Set is insufficient. This is the third Needle Set Vidacare has released.
“The EZ-IO product system allows first responders to gain immediate and reliable vascular access in less than perfect conditions, and our next generation of the product has been developed with our users in mind to provide even more convenience and reliability.” said Phil Faris, CEO of Vidacare.
