Our solution to preventing spinal misconnections
When used for neuraxial and regional anaesthesia, universal Luer connections have led to administrative errors1 , which in some cases has proven fatal2 . Problems occurred when intravenous (IV) medicines were administered by the spinal route and vice versa; when anaesthetics were delivered through IV lines3 .
It is widely recognised that the use of a non-luer connection can limit these errors4 which has generated an increasing need for better connections5 . The result is the ISO 80369-6 standard named NRFit6 . In line with these new standards specifying small-bore connectors for neuraxial and regional anesthesia, Vygon has developed neurafit.
Featuring NRFit® standard small-bore connectors, the benefits of neurafit™ include:
- Avoids any connection to luer devices
- A one-piece reversed design, and a smaller diameter, to minimise dead space
- No misconnection.
