Hello everyone, my first topic on the forum.
I'm currently studying for my first ACLS course in preparation for my preceptorship (hopefully in the ER) during my last quarter of nursing school.
I'm reading up and saw the term IO/IV access.. as I continued reading, I thought about how often IO is really used in the emergency field... I think its absolutely fascinating and such a awesome non-collapsible route for rapid fluid infusion!
I searched and did find a few topics started a year ago and older, and just wanted an updated, current tally of how often ER, or other nurses see this route utilized...
Thanks ladies and gents!
