As the medic has arranged for a demonstration to teach the Marines how to set a FAST1, a US Marine who has volunteered to be the medic's test subject gets a FAST1 pushed directly into his chest during the demonstration. He probably wishes he didn't volunteer for this particular mission.
What is a FAST1?
WHEN SECONDS COUNT, YOU NEED STERNAL IO THAT SIMPLY WORKS – PERIOD.
FAST1 Intraosseous Infusion System is a sternal intraosseous device from Pyng Medical. Developed for military and combat personnel, and emergency personnel, FAST1 is specifically designed to be as easy to learn, simple to use, and fail-safe as possible – even for first time users and new medical professionals.
As a highly effective alternative to traditional peripheral intravenous access, FAST1 gives you the critical ability to quickly establish vascular access, and rapidly and easily deliver emergency fluids and medications into the vascular system through the bone marrow of the manubrium.
Safe to use in patients 12 years of age and older, FAST1 can be effectively used during CPR and when a cervical spine collar is in place, says the information on the Pyng website.
