EZ-IO® Device Proximal

Humerus Identification

and Insertion Technique


Insertion:
 • Prepare the site by using antiseptic solution per institutional protocol

using a clean, “no touch” technique.
 • Remove the needle set cap.
 • Once the insertion site is determined as described above, insert the

needle set tip through the skin approximately 45-degrees anterior to

the horizontal plane and aim the needle set downward approximately

45-degrees. Some find it helpful to think of aiming toward the

inferolateral border of the scapula. See Figure 14.
 • Push the needle set tip through the skin until the tip rests against

the bone
