Intravenous delivery of medication or other vital products can save lives. But mix-ups with connectors that mean the wrong product is delivered can have catastrophic consequences. A new standard for connectors with intravenous or hypodermic applications has just been published, complementing the series of standards dedicated to reducing risks in such medical settings.
ISO 80369-7:2016 Small-bore connectors for liquids and gases in healthcare applications — Part 7: Connectors for intravascular or hypodermic applications – specifies dimensions and requirements for the design and functional performance of small bore connectors for use in intravascular or hypodermic applications of medical devices and accessories.
