Chest Is Best™
Sternal IO is the quickest route to the heart. The fact is, not all IO is clinically equal. Sternal IO delivers drugs to the heart 2 - 3 times faster and in higher therapeutic concentrations than tibial IO.
Specifically designed for use in demanding, emergency environments, it is the quickest, safest and most effective IV alternative for the delivery of drugs and fluids to the heart. FAST1® is used extensively by defense departments, emergency medical services, and hospitals around the globe.
Actual insertion is complete within 10 seconds. In numerous field studies, the entire FAST1® procedure – from site prep to securing the protective dome – can easily be accomplished in less than 30 seconds.
The target patch ensures quick, accurate placement. In published studies, placement success rates for FAST1® are greater than 95%.
FAST1® allows for continuous chest compressions. A quick comparison of the chest compression site and FAST1® target patch clearly shows no interference between the two. In fact, users find it easier to manage treatment from a single location near the patient’s head.
As a single-use device, FAST1® protects against the risk of cross contamination. With user-controlled deploy
ment requiring only manual pressure, as well as patented, automatic depth control, both patients and EMS personnel are protected.
