Safety in the Details
Elcam Medical strives to provide the building blocks for safer and more effective medical fluid management in acute settings. Elcam Medical widens its Safety Is In The Details™ campaign with new and innovative components.
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.
Preparing for the new ISO 80369 Standards
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 Standard, Neuraxial applications
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 Standard, Intravascular (IV) and Hypodermic applications for connectors with 6% (luer) taper
The Elcam ISO/FDIS 80369-7 Connectors 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.
