Purpose: Outline the preparation and administration of medication doses using the ENFit system. This procedure will be applicable to patients of all age groups in inpatient settings.
Background: The ENFit® system is the new ISO standard for enteral connectors. It promotes patient safety by reducing the risk of misconnection between unrelated systems by implementing a unique mechanical design. The syringes are available in 2 tip versions: low dose and standard dose.
In an effort to make enteral feeding safer, the ENFit connector was designed to give every enteral delivery set, extension set, syringe, and feeding tube a specific connector that is unique to enteral feeding.
Low Dose Dual Cap
Meets ISO standard for syringe accuracy when used as indicated.
The Medela Low Dose Dual Cap provides a safe, accurate, and convenient way for your pharmacy to continue the use of ISMP recommended slip-tip syringes, while allowing the entire hospital to benefit from transitioning to ENFit® enteral connectors.
