GEDSA Releases Conclusive Position Statement August 2016

As a summary of previous Position Statements, GEDSA re-emphasizes recom­men­da­tions including:

“Performance testing conducted by an accredited third party lab and usability studies conducted throughout the world confirm the ENFit LDT syringe when used as instructed:

  • Delivers an accurate dose substan­tially equiv­alent with current male orien­tated enteral/oral syringes.
  • Outperforms existing female (reverse) orien­tated syringes.
  • Fits into current practice and main­tains compat­i­bility with other ENFit devices”

Furthermore, the August GEDSA Position Statement recom­mends:

“GEDSA and its supporting orga­ni­za­tions including the Joint Commission, ISMP, ASHP, ASPEN, NHS, and EPSG encourage manu­fac­turers to introduce enteral devices with ENFit connectors, and healthcare facil­ities to:

  • Adopt feeding systems with ENFit connectors as soon as possible.
  • Use ENFit LDT syringes to ensure accurate dose delivery of small volumes.
  • Work with your supplier repre­sen­tative and distributor network to under­stand their specific timing and product avail­ability for tran­sition.
  • Confirm syringe suppliers have adequate supplies of standard and LDT ENFit syringes before converting to ENFit feeding tubes”

A new and signif­icant recom­men­dation is included by GEDSA:

“In order to obtain the requisite dose accuracy, manu­fac­turers of ENFit LDT syringes should specify in their instruc­tions for use and labeling that the syringe user should remove fluid that lies outside of the fluid path. The area between the male lumen and the outer ring (the “moat”) is not part of the fluid path and should be free of fluid. For settings that require highly accurate low volume doses, an ENFit LDT Syringe is recom­mended. The ENFit LDT syringe tip design satisfies the perfor­mance expec­ta­tions for dose accuracy, dead space, and tolerance on grad­uated capacity.”

NeoMed’s inno­v­ative products include DoseMate, an ergonomic tip, which prevents fluid accu­mu­lation in the moat during direct oral admin­is­tration.
