I know this:
“ We had an infant with a critical airway who acutely decompensated. An initial EZ-IO was inserted in the tibia to allow for resuscitative measures, and subsequently to allow for sedation so central line access could be attempted. A second EZ-IO was placed in the other tibia after central line access was unsuccessful. The child was then transported to the OR for an emergent surgical airway. Resuscitation efforts would not have been successful without the EZ-IO. The EZ-IO clearly saved this child’s life.”
