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 that match industry norms.
