Emergency infusion of catecholamines into bone marrow.


An emergency infusion of catecholamines into the bone marrow of a 6-month-old infant was performed. We believe this is the first report of continuous intraosseous infusion of dopamine hydrochloride and dobutamine hydrochloride. Intraosseous infusions are efficacious and complications are rare. We recommend use of this technique in emergency circumstances when venous access cannot be obtained.
