Intraosseous Infusion System
When resuscitation is in progress, the ability to deliver fluid and medication—quickly and effectively—can be essential. Normal peripheral intravenous (IV) access is the traditional choice, yet IV access times and the ability to start an IV can vary greatly depending on the responder, the environment, and the situation. And if a patient is in hypovolemic shock or cardiac arrest, the challenge of starting an IV grows that much greater. Intraosseous (IO) infusion can offer a critical alternative.
The FAST1® Intraosseous Infusion System from Pyng is the first FDA-cleared IO system designed specifically for use in the sternum during adult and adolescent emergency intervention. When normal peripheral intravenous access fails, FAST1® helps emergency care providers—in a hospital or during pre-hospital response—quickly establish vascular access and administer emergency fluids and medications safely and effectively through the bone marrow of the manubrium. FAST1® is safe to use in patients 12 years of age and older and can be used during CPR when a cervical spine collar is in place.
Any fluids or medications that can be administered by the IV route also can be administered by IO. As an accepted standard of care and treatment modality, IO infusion is endorsed by the American Heart Association, Advanced Trauma Life Support, and Advanced Cardiac Life Support courses, as well as the European Resuscitation Council. IO is also taught as part of military medicine training and Tactical Combat Casualty Care guidelines.

- Fast: Delivers medication two to three times faster than tibial IO
- Precise: Exact placement every time
- Safe: Automatic depth control for safe delivery above the lungs and heart
- Easy: Simple to use
- Sterile: Single-use, disposable product with no risk of cross-contamination
- Flexible: Soft, low-profile, secure tubing
- Sleek: Lightweight design allows portability in medic packs
The next generation of IO has arrived
Time is of the essence. Rapidly administering fluid and medication during resuscitation can be critical, but sometimes normal peripheral intravenous (IV) access is not an option. Alternatives like central venous catheterization or venous cut-down are time-consuming and challenging in the best of situations, and most pre-hospital and hospital medical personnel are not equipped or trained to perform these procedures. Intraosseous (IO) infusion can be the answer.

On-the-spot pelvic stability
Approximately 20,000 pelvic fractures are reported in the United States annually. Up to 15% of these are “open-book” fractures—a significant source of blood loss and, if untreated, an injury with a mortality rate as high as 85%. Outside of a surgical environment, achieving ideal stabilization and reducing pain for an open-book pelvic fracture patient has been an extraordinary challenge. Until now.
The T-POD® Pelvic Stabilization Device from Pyng is a rapid and effective device for treating pelvic trauma, pain, and bleed-out while preventing loss of life. With its patented circumferential tightening mechanism, T-POD® is the only external fixation device shown in independent clinical studies to be equivalent to a surgical procedure in achieving stabilization, while also mitigating patient discomfort. T-POD® is used extensively by civilian first responders in motor vehicle accidents and by medics on the battlefield, especially in incidents involving improvised explosive devices.
- Complete: Specially engineered pulley system ensures even pelvic compression and stabilization
- Easy: Single-handed tightening with no straining
- Adjustable: One size fits most physiologies, easily trimmed for custom fit; two can be secured together for obese patients
- Flexible: Non-metal fabric belt
- Compatible: 100% radiolucent, X-ray, CT, and MRI compatible
- Safe: Latex-free
Saving limbs And lives
When a tourniquet is needed in an emergency situation, only one result matters—how fast it can stop the bleeding.
Initially developed for the U.S. Department of Defense as theMAT®, E-MAT™ is now available for the Emergency Medical Service (EMS) market with its new, bright, safety orange color. Providing quick visual confirmation that a tourniquet is in place, E-MAT™ has all the same award-winning features as the MAT®.

clear the way
The most common causes of death on the battlefield in order of frequency are: 1. Catastrophic injury (instant death), 2. Hemorrhage, and 3. Airway/Ventilation issues. As such, “airway issues” (or airway trauma) are the second leading causes of “preventable death” on the battlefield.
A cricothyroidotomy provides a standard procedure for securing a patient’s airway, but current methods require at least three distinct medical instruments—scalpel, retractor, and insertion tube—and in many cases, a light source is also necessary. This makes the procedure extremely difficult to perform outside of a hospital setting, particularly on the battlefield. Yet there is a solution.
The CRIC™ Cricothyroidotomy System from Pyng is an easy-to-use, ergonomically designed system that incorporates all the necessary instruments—including a depth-controlled scalpel—for establishing an airway in civilian or military casualties suffering from facial, jaw, or upper-neck injuries. Lightweight and handheld, CRIC™ is specifically designed to meet the needs of the U.S. military as a standard piece of equipment for use by medics as they work to save lives under extraordinarily difficult conditions.
