Nutricia ENFit™ enteral tubing connection system
While tube mis-connections are rare, compatibility between enteral and other delivery systems, such as intravenous (IV) or luer based delivery systems, can pose a real risk to patient safety and can even be life-threatening.
Therefore Nutricia participated (in collaboration with other leading global suppliers of enteral feeding devices) in the development of a new ISO standard for small bore connectors (80369-3), called ENFit™. This new enteral tubing connection system prevents mis-connections and ensures that only enteral nutrition can be delivered through enteral nutrition delivery systems.
The ENFit™ system is enteral nutrition specific and is designed to be incompatible with non enteral delivery systems such as IV, hereby enhancing safety and reducing complexity.
