Intraosseous access: when and how

According to this Medscape presentation:

IO access is one of the quickest ways to establish vascular access for the rapid infusion of fluids, drugs, and blood products in an emergency. In adults and pediatrics after 2 peripheral IV attempts, IO is the next-line modality.

Using IO is very important. in several cases we need the quickest vascular access and there is no time to waste. I would like to propose using the Bone Injection Gun (B.I.G).
This is the first and only automatic intra-osseous device. Please check the bellow link for a demonstration video:
