To improve patient safety and help reduce the risk of misconnections, Luer connectors on medical devices used for neuraxial applications are changing to meet new international design standards.
All health care facilities in the United States, among other countries, are expected to begin converting in order to meet the ISO standard. California has already taken legislative action by mandating that health care facilities convert to these new standardized epidural products by Jan. 1, 2017.
B. Braun has been at the forefront of preparing for this change. We’ve taken an active role in helping our customers comply with the evolving industry safety standards, including transitioning to products with NRFit™ connectors in a timely manner.
