Intraosseous infusion of Adenosine in an infant

In most cases, antecubital intravenous access can be established, and adenosine can be administered in a rapid and timely fashion. The role and administration of intraosseous adenosine are poorly established” Helleman et al (2017).

Abstract:

Supraventricular tachycardia is a common arrhythmia faced by emergency physicians in the pediatric population. In most cases, antecubital intravenous access can be established, and adenosine can be administered in a rapid and timely fashion. The role and administration of intraosseous adenosine are poorly established. We describe a case where the administration of adenosine was successful via a mixed method administration.
