The misconnection of enteral feeding tubes,
respiratory gas, or pressurized air lines to patient IV lines is a
serious and potentially fatal error.
Recent concerns regarding the ability to
inadvertently attach enteral and oxygen tubing lines to needlefree
connectors have prompted healthcare facilities to take action and
utilize infusion devices that prevent such misconnects from
All of our
needlefree vascular access devices are incompatible with
enteral feeding tube connectors.
Additionally, the unique design of these needlefree
connectors inhibits the flow of oxygen if an oxygen tube sleeve is
inappropriately and forcibly applied to the device, helping to
eliminate the possibility of a deadly air embolism.
