Abstract

Cases: Intraosseous (IO) access is an effective surrogate for intravascular access in critically ill patients. We present 2 cases of IO complications. The first patient is a 44-year-old man with deep peroneal nerve sensorimotor dysfunction due to possible missed acute compartment syndrome from improper placement of a tibial IO needle. The second patient is an immunosuppressed 69-year-old man with idiopathic factor VIII deficiency who required amputation 7 months after right tibia IO access. Conclusion: These adverse events of IO access are limited in the literature. We make recommendations to reduce these outcomes.
