Intraosseous Trainer

Lifelike training in IO needle placement

Infant intraosseous trainer for realistic practice in IO infusion

Practice intraosseous injection at the proximal tibia on TruBaby X.

TruCorp’s infant IO training manikin TruBaby X is the most realistic and durable IO training manikin and task trainer available. Built to withstand heavy use in classrooms and simulation centers, this training model is ideal for nurses, anesthetists and other medical professionals.

Intraosseous infusion (IO) is used to deliver fluids or medication when intravenous (IV) access is not possible. IO can also be used to collect blood samples.

IO Trainer features

TruBaby X is a complete solution for pediatric clinical skills training including IO needle insertion featuring:

Infant IO leg

TruBaby X allows training in IO tibial insertion and features a proximal tibia interosseous needle insertion site with accurate anatomical landmarks and realistic look and feel of simulated skin, fat and muscle tissues.

The proximal tibia is the preferred site for intraosseous infusion in infants. The TruBaby X leg features anatomically correct tibial tuberosity and patella anatomy which facilitates for the identification of the proximal tibia intraosseous needle insertion site. Practitioners will feel realistic resistance when penetrating the medullary cavity.

What is intraosseous infusion?

When establishing an intravenous line in an infant is very difficult or impossible, IO infusion is a technique used to create a non-collapsible point of entry and gain vascular access.

Long bones have marrow cavities (aka medullary cavities) made up of venous sinusoids, which are irregular blood vessel structures forming a spongy network. These sinusoids in the marrow cavity drain into a central venous canal which then drains into the main circulation system.

There are many sites containing marrow which have the potential for intraosseous infusion. In infants, the preferred site is the proximal tibia.

The absorption rate from intraosseous and intravenous access is comparable. IO access is more common in pre-hospital settings.
