Conversion to enteral devices with ENFIT connectors impacts the entire enteral feeding system across all healthcare settings. To avoid disruption of therapy, a careful and methodical transition is recommended.
The new ENFIT connector provides a simple way to reduce the risk of enteral tube feeding misconnections and improve patient safety. The new ENFIT connector:
Addresses "patient side" connections between feeding tubes, administration sets medication, flush and bolus feeding syringes, and other enteral devices
Passes a rigorous validation process, including computer-aided design (CAD), human factors, and usability testing as part of the pathway to ISO standards
Does not allow connectivity with any other connector for any other clinical use
Provides a locking feature that signals the appropriate connection and stays in place
Has a female connector end and syringes that fit into a male patient-access feeding tube port for any administration sets
Enteral ENFIT Syringes
Sizes available from 0.5 mL to 60 mL to support enteral-route medication administration. The clear barrel, dark print, and ENFIT design allows for easy drawing of medication and accurate dose delivery.
For use with standard liquids or viscous ﬂuids.
Indicated for use as a dispenser, a measuring device, and a fluid transfer device
Used to deliver fluids into the body enterally
Intended to be used in clinical or home care settings by users ranging from clinicians to laypersons (under the supervision of a clinician) in all age groups
To facilitate conversion to the ENFIT system, Baxter is offering a transition connector that allows clinicians to use the new administration and patient tube sets with the existing male-tip syringes. Baxter’s transition connector is available in a non-sterile conﬁguration (cap included but not shown).
Intended for connecting a male oral-tip syringe to an enteral administration set or enteral catheter with an ENFIT medication port
