On the Infographic they recommend: "Making an organizational commitment to buying equipment with luer lock connectors for...Respiratory systems."
So, will the manufacturers out there please tell us what will happen with our pressure and gas sampling cannulas?

[color=#004080]This is mainly for Enteral feeding tubes and IVs, from what I understand.

Just another sign that we are becoming more stupid. A nurse cannot tell if they are connecting an IV to a feeding tube or vice versa? So the connectors for each must now be made different to prevent these errors from happening.

Maybe I should go back into my cave.

It may not be nurses who are doing the plugging. ;)

Please stay out of the cave. We need you here.
