Teleflex Expands Intraosseous Vascular Access Portfolio with New Arrow™ EZ-IO™ Intraosseous Access Procedure Tray

WAYNE, Pa., May 09, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Teleflex Incorporated (NYSE: TFX), a global leader in medical technologies and pioneer in intraosseous vascular access, today announced the launch of the ArrowEZ-IO Intraosseous Access Procedure Tray. This sterile, single-use tray includes all the components required for the IO access procedure, enabling a streamlined clinician workflow.

The new Arrow™ EZ-IO™ Procedure Tray includes the first FDA-cleared sterile, single-use, battery-powered driver, providing clinicians with an IO access option that can be used in a sterile field in the operation room and any other area of the hospital that requires a sterile field. The tray is packaged with an Arrow™ EZ-IO™ Intraosseous Needle Set (15mm, 25mm, or 45mm), which is designed to help ensure a fast,1 precise, and steady insertion. Additional components include:

  • Pre-filled saline syringe and ChloraPrep™ Frepp™ Clear applicator
  • EZ-Stabilizer™ Dressing
  • EZ-Connect™ Extension Set
  • SharpsAway™ II Locking Sharps Disposal Cup
  • EZ-IO™ Patient Wristband
  • Quick Reference Guide, printed on underside of every tray lidstock

“The Arrow™ EZ-IO™ Procedure Tray was developed after research was conducted with healthcare professionals who may benefit from an intraosseous access solution in a complete, convenient and sterile kit,” stated Michelle Fox, Corporate Vice President and Chief Medical Officer at Teleflex. “This addition to our IO access portfolio reflects our relentless pursuit of innovation to empower clinicians and elevate patient care in challenging vascular access situations.”

Delayed vascular access can result in treatment delays, which can lead to adverse outcomes.2-5 The Arrow™ EZ-IO™ Intraosseous Access System can be used when intravenous access is difficult or impossible to obtain in emergent, urgent, or medically necessary cases. In a recent survey of hospital-based clinicians, 65% recalled situations where their IO device was not accessible during a time-critical difficult vascular access situation.6 More than 75% of clinicians surveyed agree that a single-use tray would increase the accessibility and convenience of IO access devices.6 The new Arrow™ EZ-IO™ Procedure Tray was designed for compact storage on hospital shelving and is small enough to fit in any code cart.

Clinicians now have a choice between the reusable Arrow™ EZ-IO™ Power Driver and the new single-use tray. “The new Arrow™ EZ-IO™ Procedure Tray was designed to optimize efficiency in gaining fast vascular access while increasing the accessibility of the EZ-IO™ System,” said Kevin Robinson, President and General Manager of Anesthesia and Emergency Medicine, Teleflex. “We listened to the challenges healthcare professionals face daily and are proud to introduce a solution that combines our industry-backed IO access device with enhanced convenience.”
