Enteralok prevents IV errors

0

Intravenous products: A new range of enteral syringes has been launched by Sheffield based InterVene® Ltd. In recent years, numerous deaths have occurred by administering enteral medication via intravenous (IV) lines. The enteral syringe which was designed in UK, has been produced in response to National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA) guidelines aimed at preventing maladministration of enteral medication via IV routes. 

The syringe employs a reverse luer or female luer tip which cannot be interchanged with a conventional IV syringe. A purple plunger immediately identifies the syringe as an enteral device and the words Enteral / Oral are clearly displayed on the barrel.
