JUAN RODRIGUEZ, Jesús; VINAS DIAZ, José A  y  SIMON, María H. The role of intraosseus infusion in children resuscitation. Our experience and a case presentation. Rev Ciencias Médicas [online]. 2008, vol.12, n.1, pp.195-201. ISSN 1561-3194.

In last years important progresses were attained in the management of the child in critical condition. However, in spite of the development of the intensive neonatal and paediatric care, the fast and efficient vascular approach is one of technical problem usually observed in the practice. Doan and Drinker et al were the first in describing the intraosseus infusion in 1922, being very useful in the paediatric resuscitation during the forties. Recently, it has deserved a new interest and has been a useful weapon in the emergent conditions as the acute diarrheic disease with severe dehydration, gastrointestinal haemorrhages, for the administration of crystalloid solutions in those patients presenting shock for dengue within the first hours of treatment as a heroic measure. Authors make some theoric considerations on this technique and its indications and contraindications.

Palabras clave : Emergency; intensive care; intraosseus infusion.
