Under ISO 80369 standards, new design changes and standards are being implemented internationally to reduce the risk of tubing misconnections between various delivery systems. Enteral nutrition is the first clinical field to transition to using the new connector.
In 2016, ENFit connectors have been made available to ALCOR Scientific customers. ENFit connectors are enteral specific and reduce the risk of injury and death as a result of tubing misconnection.
The ENFit connector:
- Does not allow connectivity with any other connector for any other clinical use
- Provides a locking feature that signals the appropriate connection and stays in place
- Administration sets and syringes have a female connector end that fit into a male patient-access feeding tube port
