NeoMed and B. Braun Partner to Prevent IV/Enteral Misconnections, Enhance Patient Safety

Bethlehem, PA – Addressing a signif­i­cant issue in neonatal health­care while helping to also address Joint Commission Sentinel Event alerts, B. Braun Medical Inc. (B. Braun) announced today its alliance with NeoMed, Inc. – a manu­fac­turer of medical devices specif­i­cally designed to enhance patient safety and clin­ical outcomes of the neonatal patient. The part­ner­ship, consisting of NeoMed®’s Enteral Safety System and B. Braun’s Perfusor® SPACE Syringe Pump, will help health­care profes­sionals prevent enteral/IV miscon­nec­tions and medica­tion errors. NeoMed and B. Braun show­cased both prod­ucts at the National Association of Neonatal Nurses (NANN) 26th Annual Education Conference.

“Catheter/tubing miscon­nec­tions continue to contribute to serious, life threat­ening errors when clin­i­cians mistak­enly admin­ister oral/enteral liquids through IV lines rather than through an enteral feeding tube,” said Gale White, Vice President of Infusion Systems Marketing for B. Braun Medical Inc. “The combi­na­tion of both B. Braun’s Perfusor SPACE Syringe Pump and NeoMed’s Enteral Safety System promises the oppor­tu­nity to provide health­care profes­sionals with a unique connector that allows for the safest, most accu­rate delivery of both enteral feed­ings and enteral medica­tions. Perfusor SPACE Syringe Pump is the only syringe pump that recog­nizes 3 through 60cc NeoMed enteral syringes guar­an­teeing accu­racy of flow at +/-2% using NeoMed syringes and exten­sion sets.”
