A small-bore connector is a connector with an inner diameter of less than 8.5mm that is used to link or join medical devices, components, and accessories for the purposes of delivering fluids or gases. A Luer connector is a classic type of a small-bore connector used commonly in the healthcare setting. The current universal design of the Luer connector allows for medical tubing misconnections—connections between unrelated delivery systems that have different intended uses (e.g., vascular, enteral, respiratory, epidural, and intrathecal).
