We’re extremely appreciative that such a respected organization as JEMS has recognized and validated these efforts by endorsing FASTResponder as one of the top 2014 products for the EMS market

Pyng Medical Corp. (PYT:TSX.V), an award-winning developer of trauma and resuscitation products for emergency, combat and critical care personnel, announces that its new FASTResponder Sternal Intraosseous (sternal IO) device was awarded the Hot Products title for 2014 by the Journal of Emergency Medical Services (JEMS). The award recognizes the best new products for emergency medical services (EMS) launched within the eight months prior to the EMS Today Conference, which was held in Washington DC on February 6-8, 2014.

FASTResponder is the newest sternal IO device from Pyng Medical, specifically designed to be used in emergency medical services and hospital settings whenever traditional intravenous access fails.

“Pyng’s FAST1 sternal IO device has long been accepted and used for fluid management by global militaries. With FASTResponder, our team worked hard to develop a sternal IO product to meet the specific needs of civilian EMS and hospital personnel,” said Pyng CEO Mark Hodge. “We’re extremely appreciative that such a respected organization as JEMS has recognized and validated these efforts by endorsing FASTResponder as one of the top 2014 products for the EMS market.”

Pyng Medical is the pioneer in sternal intraosseous infusion technology. In 2000, Pyng launched FAST1, the first FDA-cleared IO system designed specifically for use in the sternum during adult and adolescent emergency intervention. FAST1 has been trusted and used by military and combat personnel for more than 14 years.

FASTResponder includes all the trusted and proven features of FAST1, but is modified to specifically meet the needs of civilian emergency medical services and hospital critical care personnel. Unlike humeral or tibial IO products, FASTResponder requires no batteries, drilling or separate needles. Featuring an all-in-one design with automatic depth control built in, EMS personnel are able to quickly and easily locate the site, and gain consistent access without worrying about using too much pressure. Additional benefits include:

  •     EMS personnel can safely use FASTResponder during CPR and with a cervical collar in place.
  •     Patients experience less pain on both insertion and infusion with Sternal IO.
  •     Designed for EMS transport with secure, low profile tubing that is difficult to dislodge.
  •     A compact and lightweight design to fit easily on a crash cart or in an emergency bag.
  •     Less pain for the patient both on insertion and infusion as compared to humeral or tibial IO. Lidocaine is not required in many cases.
