FDA GIVES VIDACARE MORE FLEXIBILITY IN USING MEDICAL DEVICE

April 20, 2006

The FDA has approved Vidacare's intraosseous medical device, the EZ-IO, to be used in cases where access is made through a patient's forearm — known as the humeral head area of the body. This gives emergency personnel an insertion site above the diaphragm and gives them more flexibility for rapid vascular access in trauma patients. Previously, the device was only approved for access through a patient's leg.
