Breathing or respiratory systems such as anesthesia machines and ventilators used to facilitate a patient’s breathing. Work on the international standard for breathing and respiratory systems is still underway. The Medzus Medical anticipates recognizing this standard once it is finalized.
RESfit is designed to ensure that Respiratory/Breathing System connectors are incompatible with the connectors for unrelated delivery systems such as neuraxial, enteral, intravascular devices. Misconnections involving such medical devices may be relatively rare compared with the number of patients needing tubes or IVs, but such misconnections can have deadly consequences when they do occur.
Medzus Medical is committed to the prevention of misconnections and actively supports the ongoing worldwide patient safety initiatives dedicated to reducing tubing misconnections for committed to supplying ISO 80369-2 compliance devices.
