StayConnected is a communications program created to facilitate a successful transition from medical device applications that allow connection between unrelated delivery systems to new, safer connectors that ensure compatibility and consistency while reducing the likelihood of tubing misconnections. ISO 80369-1 is the global design standard that establishes requirements for these connectors for liquids and gases in healthcare applications.
Starting with enteral devices, the Stay Connected initiative is helping gradually introduce new standard connectors for specific delivery systems, including neuraxial, limb cuff inflation, and respiratory avpplications.
The StayConnected initiative was created by GEDSA (Global Enteral Device Supplier Association) to help introduce new connectors. For questions or comments about StayConnected, contact us at:
