Abstract

AIM:

To evaluate the use of intraosseous lines for rapid vascular access in primary resuscitation of preterm and full term neonates.

METHODS:

Thirty intraosseous lines were placed in 27 newborns, in whom conventional venous access had failed.

RESULTS:

All the neonates survived the resuscitation procedure, with no long term side effects.

CONCLUSION:

Intraosseous infusion is quick, safe, and effective in compromised neonates.
