New Standards For Medical Tubing Connectors

Are You Ready?

FREE Webinar – Wednesday, August 20, 2014 @ 2:00 pm Eastern

New global design standards for medical tubing connectors are being released and include new connectors for enteral, neuraxial and respiratory devices.  Starting with enteral feeding and the new ENFit connector by the end of this year, these new design standards will help ensure that connectors do not fit into ports other than the type for which they are intended, reducing the risk of serious or often fatal consequences of misconnections.  These standards and new connectors have broad implications across the entire supply chain and continuum of patient care settings.

This program will cover:
– The new standards and product-specific changes, including the enteral feeding systems and the transition timeline;
Implications for supply chain and inventory for effective transition
– How these new standards and products will affect multiple functions, protocols and processes across the entire continuum of patient care
– Identify steps needed to prepare, educate and implement a plan for a smooth transition to the new products to maximize patient safety
