About

This is a prospective diagnostic accuracy study investigating the sensitivity and specificity of methods used to confirm correct placement of an intraosseous (IO) catheter. Intraosseous catheters allow medical providers to rapidly administer fluids and medications to critically ill patients when intravenous (IV) access is not present or difficult to achieve. It is standard of care to confirm the correct placement of an IO catheter prior to using it to administer medications or fluids. Three IO placement confirmatory tests will be performed on all research subjects using a standardized protocol. There will be two index tests (the method utilized by most of the medical community evaluating the stability of the catheter, ability to aspirate blood or bone marrow and ability to administer fluids without visible or palpable extravasation as well as the method of demonstrating color flow Doppler only within the intraosseous space during bedside ultrasound exam) and one reference test (ability to visualized a pulsatile waveform when the IO catheter is attached to a pressure transducer). Primary outcome measures of the study will be the determination of correct or incorrect IO catheter placement from the confirmation methods. This data will be used to investigate the primary endpoints of sensitivity and specificity of the confirmation tests as well as inter-operator variability interpreting the raw data from the confirmation methods. Secondary outcomes include complications from the IO catheter. The goal of this study is to see if a more sensitive and specific method of IO catheter confirmation can reliably be performed by different physicians and reduce the amount of complications associated with the catheters. Additional subgroup analyses will be performed in regards to the research subjects BMI and the anatomic site selected for IO catheter use (proximal tibia or humeral head).

Intraosseous (IO) catheter placement confirmation methods
Experimental group
Description:
All patients will undergo all three confirmation methods/procedures. Method 1 is a triage test and an index test. Method 2 is an index test. Method 3 is a reference standard. None of the procedures being performed in this study are regulated by the United States Food and Drug Administration.
Treatment:
Procedure: Standard intraosseous (IO) catheter confirmation procedure
Procedure: Color flow Doppler intraosseous (IO) catheter confirmation procedure
Procedure: Pressure transduction intraosseous (IO) catheter confirmation procedure
