SAM IO Driver is a multi-use, manually operated intraosseous access driver that offers a more tactile feel for needle placement. The SAM IO is indicated for the proximal humerus, proximal tibia and distal tibia in adult and paediatric patients. The distal femur is also indicated in paediatric patients.
Catheter placement is achieved by repeatedly compressing the driver's trigger assembly while gently guiding the needle assembly into position. Each full trigger actuation creates rotational spin of the needle assembly which, when combined with gentle downward pressure results in controlled IO placement.
Once the SAM IO's needle assembly is properly positioned, the stylet is removed to expose a standard Luer-lock fitting for extension set connection.
