The SAM IO Training kit provides all of the equipment needed to familiarize trainees with the SAM IO hardware and usage. The nylon carrying case includes elastic loops for storing needles, along with attachment points for the driver once you've removed these items from their original packaging. The main compartment has a divider that includes a mesh pouch on the under side for storing additional loose pieces such as the needle adaptor. The included equipment is for training use only.
About the SAM IO: SAM IO is a manually operated intraosseous access system. Catheter placement is achieved by continuously actuating (repeatedly compressing) the driver’s trigger assembly while gently guiding needle assembly into position. Repeated, full trigger actuation creates rotational spin of the needle assembly which, when combined with gentle downward pressure, results in controlled IO placement. Once needle assembly is properly positioned, the stylet is removed to expose standard Luer-lock for extension set connection. With the extension set connected, aspiration verification, flushing and selected treatment(s) may commence. The SAM IO system is designed to be intuitive for current IO users, featuring color coding and depth indicators which match industry norms.
The SAM IO is designed for effective IO placement in both adult and pediatric patients. NOTE: When determining the anatomical site and needle length for intraosseous access, patient age and physiology should be considered per protocol or standard, and on a case by case basis based on clinical judgement. Common insertion sites include:
Please refer to the manufacturer's IFU for the SAM IO Needle for recommended insertion sites based on patient variables.
Note: The SAM IO is not intended for sternal application.
