SAM Medical SAM IO

SAM IO is a manually operated intraosseous access system. Catheter placement is achieved by continuously actuating (repeatedly compressing) the driver’s trigger assembly while gently guiding needle assembly into position. Repeated, full trigger actuation creates rotational spin of the needle assembly which, when combined with gentle downward pressure, results in controlled IO placement. Once needle assembly is properly positioned, the stylet is removed to expose standard Luer-lock for extension set connection. With the extension set connected, aspiration verification, flushing and selected treatment(s) may commence.


The SAM IO Driver is made of polycarbonate material, which was chosen for its durable characteristics, and has been certified under MILSTD 810G testing for durability and harsh environment use. The driver has been tested and cleared for over 10,000 actuations.



SAM IO’s innovative design incorporates the patented multi-use manually operated driver, which does not rely on battery power for operation. The ergonomic driver design supports quick and intuitive application, while offering a tactile feel for needle placement.

The SAM IO Intraosseous Access System includes: A driver, 3 needle sizes – 15mm, 25mm, 45 mm, SAM Stabilizer and SAM Adaptor.
