The ISO 80369-6 Neuraxial Connector Standard
GEDSA Guidance on the Introduction of NRFit®
GEDSA is a 501(c)(6) non-profit trade association with the mission of advancing patient safety by minimizing the risks of small-bore medical tubing misconnections, which can result in patient injury and death. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) developed the ISO 80369 series of standards to provide engineered tubing connectors, designed to be mechanically incompatible with connectors from other areas of therapy, to minimize misconnection risks. ISO 80369-6 is the neuraxial section of this standard, with connectors called NRFit®. GEDSA developed the Stay Connected® initiative to coordinate the global launch of the safer NRFit® connectors.
