Enhancing patient and caregiver safety with new Tritan™ integrated products
It is a well-established fact that when plastic is exposed to a chemical environment, the material may undergo numerous changes. If the plastic is under stress, it may also experience environmental stress cracking (ESC) , which is defined as the crazing and cracking that may occur when plastic under tensile stress is exposed to aggressive chemicals. The potential for environmental stress cracking is of paramount concern when plastics are used in medical device components such as luers and stopcocks. In these applications, chemicals such as isopropanol and lipid solutions can initiate crazes—microcracks bridged by polymer fibrils—in the plastic and seriously compromise its mechanical integrity. Such an event can lead to serious patient injury or even death due to several adverse events: medication discontinuation, bleeding, air ingress and air embolism, dehydration, bacteria ingress and consequent blood stream infection. Additionally ESC also jeopardizes medical teams that may come in contact with blood and potentially aggressive drugs leaking from the crazes and cracks.
Nowadays there are raw materials that have shown increased durability to ESC and when it comes to safety in medical care, especially when aggressive agents like chemotherapeutics and lipids are involved, it is important to take into consideration the proper selection of the medical plastic.
Eastman Tritan™ is a new-generation copolyester that has been shown in laboratory settings to be resistant to a large spectrum of medical fluids such as oncology drugs, lipids, drug carrier solvents, and nutrition which minimizes the risk of cracking and increases patient safety.
Tritan™ is also BPA-free, and it is additionally known for its toughness, low residual stresses, and color stability post sterilization.
Elcam Medical's new Tritan™ Integrated Stopcocks are already available and Connectors, that will be available in Q3, provide protection to patients and care givers from lipid and drug related connectors' erosion.
This new line provides our OEM customers with tools to mitigate lipid and drug related hazards during fluid administration. It will also enable Elcam to offer a BPA-free line of components for customers who are concerned with emerging legislation.
Elcam is promoting patient safety by preventing misconnections
Luer connector misconnections are an under-recognized but common dangerous events. The objective of the new ISO 80369 Standards that are gradually being implemented is to prevent these adverse events so crucial to patient safety.
Elcam Medical has taken a proactive approach to the implementation of the new ISO 80369 standard regulations and is in the process of implementing those standard drafts well in advance allowing our customers to prepare themselves for the upcoming change.
The ISO 80369-3 Standard, Enteral Feeding applications
Elcam Medical has launched a new Enteral Feeding Stopcock that includes the Enfit connector design that fully complies with the new standard.
ISO 80369-6 2016 Standard, Neuraxial applications
This standard will eventually be adopted by the medical device industry following a new Sate of California legislation requiring, from January 2017, the use of an epidural connector that would not fit into a connector other than the type for which it is intended. Among relevant devices that will be affected by this new standard are epidural devices, pain pumps, and their administration sets, regional anesthesia catheters, and needles. This line of connectors will include both male and female versions and also vented and non-vented caps for both connectors. The connectors will be made of the clear Tritan™ material from Eastman, which was shown in laboratory tests to have improved lipid resistance, high clarity, and the BPA-free benefit.
Elcam intends to launch an ISO 80369-6 2016 male Safe2Rotate (S2R) version of connectors for minimizing disconnections and providing another safety layer for neuraxil fluid administration.
ISO 80369-7 2016 Standard, Intravascular (IV) and Hypodermic applications for connectors with 6% (luer) taper
The Elcam ISO/FDIS 80369-7 Connectrs will also address the need of drug resistance connectivity by cooperating with Eastman in implementing the well-known Tritan™ material with its properties of oncology drugs and lipid resistance and chemical compatibility and durability.
ISO/DIS 80369-2 Standard, Respiratory applications
Recently, the breathing systems connectors’ standard has been removed by the ISO organization; however, its final destiny is still ambiguous. Nonetheless, Elcam has started developing connectors that will comply with this standard as part of its Patient Safety Roadmap. During 2017, Elcam launch a series of connectors which comply with ISO/DIS 80369-2.
Elcam Medical's Safe2Rotator
The Safe2Rotator is a rotator with a spin-lock feature that provides rotational flexibility to the distal part of the stopcock set. This is currently available for standard bore products and will be available for large bore products in the near future. The Safe2 Rotator is easy to use and provides an extra layer of protection in terms of accidental disconnection of medical tubing, including IV or arterial tubing. In addition, tubing kinks and twists as well as connection breakage are minimized. The Safe2 Rotator is CE approved, Premarket notification (510K) was submitted.
Specialized Stopcocks - Fighting infections with the Safe-T™ Line
It is a known and documented (1,2) in the medical industry that standard stopcocks are suspected as being contaminated after several hours of clinical use.
At Elcam we prefer confronting this head on. Our Safe-T™ line of stopcocks provide you with a range of solutions for minimizing these contaminations:
C - Safe-T™ – a Closed Stopcock, integrated with a Swabable Luer Activated Valve, allowing for maintenance of a fully closed system through the entire use of the stopcock, as well as eliminating needle stick injuries when using a stopcock
M – Safe (Marvelous Stopcock™) – Named after the abbreviation of Minimal Residual Volume Luer Activated Swabbable Stopcock, it is a closed stopcock with a proprietary flow channel feature, allowing your customers to automatically flush drugs and blood residuals, without the need to expose the system to the open air, and assuring minimal residual volume
B-Safe-T™ – a standard stopcock configuration, impregnated with Silver Ions, which are well known to be antimicrobial. The efficacy of these Silver Ions in a stopcock has been shown in-vitro in variety of lab tests.
Double Safe-T™ – a "Closed Stopcock" as in the C- Safe-T™, while the stopcock material is also impregnated with Silver Ions, providing a double barrier against contamination.
Triple Safe-T™ – A "Closed Stopcock" impregnated with Silver Ions, integrated with Elcam's unique Marvelous™ feature, providing a triple barrier against contamination.
