FAST1™ Intraosseous Infusion

Article Number: 01-0041-001RTR

The FAST1™ intraosseous (IO) infusion device was the first sternal IO system available, introduced in the early 1990's, and remains the gold standard today. In 2010 the American Heart Association
(AHA) and the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) added IO access to their guidelines. The FAST1™ has been in use by the U.S. military since it became available and it is their number one IO
choice.
Sternal access provides a simple and reliable location for IO. There is a rich supply of red bone marrow, compared to the yellow bone marrow of extremities. Sternal IO use rapidly returns blood
and any administered fluids and medications through the superior vena cava directly to the heart. Additionally sternal infusion into red marrow is less painful then that of extremities because yellow marrow is more dense and less elastic.
The FAST1™ introducer is compact and uses the manual insertion of the medical provider, with no reliance on batteries. There is an automatic depth control of 6 mm into the bone and it is approved
for patients 12 years and older.
Placement of the FAST1™ does not interfere with manual or automatic chest compression.
