Advisor Live Webinar: Transitioning to ENFitĀ® Connectors: A Safer Enteral Feeding System

Misconnections between enteral devices and other medical devices have been associated with patient death and serious injuries.

On Sept. 7, 2018, the FDA released a communication recommending hospitals, clinicians and manufacturers use enteral devices with connectors that meet the International Organization for Standardization ISO 80369-1 or ISO 80369-3 standards. They stated that there are currently marketed enteral connectors that meet the 80369-3 standards, many of which are identified by the tradename ENFit®.

On Oct. 4, 2018, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released a communication stating that the creation of industry standards and new products provide an opportunity to reduce patient harm and is in line with the FDA’s recommendations.

In this 90-minute webinar, participants will:
  • Develop an understanding of the history of the development of the 80369-3 standards and the internationally chosen ENFit® design. 
  • Review the FDA’s recommendations.
  • Learn the manufacturer’s plan to support the market conversion to ISO 80369-3 compliant connectors and current product availability.
  • Discover the journey of one healthcare system's adoption of the safer enteral feeding system.
