FAST1 No Longer Requires Remover Tool
Vancouver, BC – Pyng Medical is proud to announce that its award-winning Fast1™ Intraosseous Infusion System no longer requires a remover tool. The new Fast1™ is removed simply by grasping the new, blue-tipped infusion tube and firmly pulling. The product upgrade was made in response to feedback from Fast1™ users based on their experiences in the field.
“Through Pyng’s ongoing commitment to technology innovation, we’ve made use of our market-leading Fast1™ Intraosseous Infusion System even more simple. We look forward to showcasing further developments in our next generation product at leading industry events later this year,” said David Christie, President and CEO.
Fast1™ is the most rapid, reliable and safe alternative to conventional IV infusion, providing lifesaving vascular access for fluid and drug resuscitation in shock and trauma victims. With its unique sternal site, Fast1™ insertion is complete within 10 seconds and drugs reach the patient’s heart in less than 20 seconds. The insertion location high on the torso allows effective emergency treatment, including continuous chest compressions, from a single location near the patient’s head. Designed as a single use device, Fast1™ ensures no risk of cross-contamination.
The new Fast1™ is now available worldwide. Offering the same simple-to-use insertion procedure, dependable 95% insertion success rate, and delivery of drugs and fluids to the heart in less than 30 seconds, Fast1™ now includes a simple removal procedure: no tool, no steps – just grasp the re-engineered blue-tipped infusion tube and firmly pull.
