Introducing the IO KeepSafe™ Intraosseous Needle Stabilizer

In the pre-hospital environment, Intraosseous Infusion has become a standard of care when the need for rapid vascular access is necessary and peripheral access is unavailable.

Protecting the IO needle has presented many challenges. All too often IO needles can be dislodged, bumped, and their patency affected during patient movement from houses, vehicles, cots, etc.

There is a new solution available to protect the IO needle. It is called the IO KeepSafe™ Intraosseous Needle Stabilizer and it is like no other product available on the market. The IO KeepSafe will revolutionize the safety and security of intraosseous infusion.

Easy and Safe.
The IO KeepSafe fits all three sizes of EZ-IO needles at all currently approved EZ-IO insertion sites. It will also fit the Illinois style needles. After proper insertion, the IO KeepSafe is placed over the top or around the needle and locks into place with a sliding clip. A soft elastic strap is wrapped around the extremity and secured.

The proof is visible.
In the past, EMS providers would use any number of methods to secure an IO needle. From bulky dressings, to BVM masks, to copious amounts of tape. All would secure the IO needle to varying degrees, but all limited the visibility of the site to monitor for infiltration, extravasation, etc. The IO KeepSafe with its patented design allows for a clear vision of the IO site and easy access if the need arises.
Why we do this?
It’s all about the patient. Securing the IO needle properly, ensuring its patency, and having quick access are all elements of patient safety with regards to the utilization of intraosseous infusion.

The IO KeepSafe was designed by an EMS professional for EMS professionals.

Instructions for IO KeepSafe
IO KeepSafe can be used with all 3 EZ-IO® needles, as well as Illinois bone marrow needles.

1. Once you have successfully established your IO access, slide fastening clip out to the retention post.
2. Position IO KeepSafe over the top of the needle and tubing while ensuring the Velcro® faces the outside of the  device. Once applied over the needle and tubing, gently hold pressure on the device.
3. Position the Velcro® strap around the patient’s extremity and through the yellow loop to tighten.
4. Slide clip into place around the hub of the needle. The IO KeepSafe allows you to monitor the insertion site.

WARNING: Use with caution in the presence of edema

  • Single patient use only
  • Follow local protocols regarding use
  • Patent pending

Flow-Safe II®+ Disposable BiLevel CPAP System

Flow-Safe II+ is the First Disposable BiLevel & CPAP System in ONE!

Flow-Safe II®+ Disposable BiLevel CPAP System is the only available Disposable BiLevel CPAP system with integrated manometer for verifying pressures. The lightweight disposable feature allows for easy CPAP or BiLevel CPAP therapy set up and delivery during transport. Flow-Safe II+ is ideal for situations where backup BiLevel CPAP equipment is scarce or unavailable.
Everything clinicians need for delivering CPAP or BiLevel therapy is available in one Flow-Safe II®+ Disposable BiLevel CPAP System. This includes an adjustable deluxe full face mask, manometer for verifying CPAP and BiLevel iPAP and ePAP pressures. Ideal for transport and is easy to set-up - just attach the oxygen tubing to an oxygen source for delivering your choice of CPAP or BiLevel therapy.
The Mercury Medical Flow-Safe II ®+ device is a respiratory aid intended for use with a facemask or advanced airway and gas supplying device to elevate pressure in the patient’s lungs. The level of airway pressure delivered to the respiratory system may be set to increase during inspiration and decrease during expiration.

Connections:

Standard oxygen tubing nipple
Patient connection ISO 5356-1 - 15mm taper female and 22mm taper male

Indications for Use:

The Mercury Medical Flow-Safe II+ device is intended to provide CPAP or BiLevel CPAP pressures to spontaneously breathing patients in the hospital, surgery center and pre-hospital environment.

DIRECTIONS FOR PROVIDING CPAP: 
Ensure device is set in CPAP mode-Green switch is set to CPAP

1. Connect O2 tubing nipple to gas source. Turn on gas source.
2. Secure the face mask snugly to patient’s face using head harness.
3. Slowly increase gas flow to 6 - 8 LPM. Check mask fit to patient and device connections for leaks.
4. Adjust the flowmeter until desired pressure is obtained. Flow of 12 - 14 LPM is required to reach CPAP pressure of 8.5 - 10 cm H2O.

DIRECTIONS FOR PROVIDING BILEVEL: 
Ensure device is set in BiLevel mode by rotating the Green switch to the BiLevel setting

1. Connect O2 tubing nipple to gas source. Turn on gas source.
2. Secure the face mask snugly to patient’s face using head harness.
3. Slowly increase gas flow to reach approximately 8 cm H2O IPAP. This is the minimum IPAP pressure required for device to function properly in the BiLevel mode. Check mask fit to patient and device connections for leaks.
 a. Adjust the flowmeter until desired IPAP pressure is obtained. Flow of 17 LPM is required to reach maximum IPAP pressure of 12 - 13 cm H2O.
 b. To decrease EPAP pressure rotate EPAP knob counterclockwise. To increase EPAP pressure rotate EPAP knob clockwise.
4. Effective mask seal is required for device to shift into EPAP mode from IPAP mode

Small Adult CPR-2 Bag with LiteSaver® Manometer

The Mercury Medical Small Adult CPR-2 Bag with LiteSaver® Manometer features Small Adult CPR-2 Bag, Oxygen Bag Reservoir, Adult Cushion Face Mask, Pop-off Valve, PEEP Valve & LiteSaver Manometer 0-60cm H2O. 
The Mercury Medical ONLY ONE SMALL ADULT Bag Adds Value, Offering BETTER Patient Outcomes…
How often are patients either ventilated too fast, with too high of a pressure or too much volume?
When it comes to tidal volumes, less is better when comparing an adult size (1600 mL) self-inflating bag/BVM to a small adult (1000 mL) bag. Smaller self-inflating bags can help reduce the incidence of over inflation, gastric distention and regurgitation. It is becoming more evident that larger tidal volumes and ventilation rates can be associated with these complications whereas smaller tidal volumes are becoming safer and more acceptable.
Adult self-inflating bags/BVM’s typically had a max capacity between 1000-1600 mL since the long past standards had recommended larger tidal volume delivery of 10-12 mL/kg. Current AHA guidelines recommend delivered tidal volumes of 400 to 500 mL or 6-7 mL/kg per ACEP’s strategy to avoid overinflation, gastric distentionand regurgitation. *(Ref studies). Clinicians can more easily comply with delivered tidal volume guidelines by using Mercury’s Small Adult size bag.
For example, according to CDC, an average adult weighs approximately 195.5 lbs which is 88.8 kg (195.5/2.2) 88.8 kg x 6 mL = 532.8 mL (7 mL = 621.6 mL).
Larger bag volumes may lead to: vomiting or aspiration, barotrauma, volutrauma or reduction in blood pressure. A small adult bag is not only easier to squeeze, it offers adequate stroke volume.
Furthermore, standard ventilator volume settings are in the 500-600 mL range. Studies are showing the same may be true using self-inflating manual resuscitators.
Streamlined Inventory
SMALL ADULT size bag also helps streamline inventory, saving space and costs by not having to purchase multiple bag sizes! (Save space: Crash carts, Pediatric ICU, EMS departments & trauma bags)
Pop-Off (Override Button with Lock-clip)
A configuration with a pop-off valve and override clip (on the patient valve) enables the use for pediatrics! It prevents accidental over ventilating by keeping peak inspiratory pressure (PIP) below 40 cm H2O. The popoff comes with an override button and lock-clip which allows the option of ventilating a patient over 40 cm H2O PIP pressure if needed. (Pop-off is an ISO standard for pediatric patients.)
LiteSaver® Manometer Helps Meet AHA Guidelines for Ventilation Rate
Adding a color-coded manometer is critical for reducing the risk of aspiration which typically occurs between 20-25 cm H2O; and at the same time, reduces chances of lung injury such as barotrauma. But when adding the ONLY ONE LiteSaver Manometer with integrated timing light to the equation, it offers one more measure of safety. LiteSaver Manometer assists in reduced stacking of breaths, helping to maintain correct respiratory rate (every 6 seconds, 10 breaths/minute, recommended by AHA) for advanced airway patients and allows the patient to completely exhale… It virtually takes the guess work out of when to deliver ventilation. All in all, a winning combination to keep track of rate, volume and pressure.
