ENFit: The Time is Now

Date: May 19, 2022

Time: 12:00PM ET

Location: Virtual

ENFit enteral tubing connectors is a design standard developed to prevent enteral tubing misconnections. Through this standard, every enteral tubing accessory, extension set, syringe, long tube/PEG, and NG-tube will be designed with a specific ENFit connector to prevent enteral tubing misconnections. Though ENFit standardization is not mandated at this time, it is recommended by many professional organizations and regulating bodies – including the Joint Commission and the Food and Drug Administration.

While this unique international standard design for enteral devices improves safety, it has yet to reach full adoption in many countries. Reasons for lack of complete adoption include the limited resources available to make the transition, supply chain challenges, and perceived shortcomings in ENFit product designs. But with many legacy enteral devices being phased out by manufacturers, implementing ENFit should be a high priority.

Featured Speakers include GEDSA’s Executive Director, Ben Davis!
