Registration is now closed.

Join Pajunk Medical Systems for a discussion on converting to the NRFit™ connectors at your facility. NRFit is a new, dedicated connector for neuraxial and regional block devices defined by ISO 80369-6 to improve patient safety. Devices with NRFit connectors are not compatible with Luer connectors, thereby reducing the risk of misconnections in regional anesthesia and preventing wrong route medication errors that may lead to fatal outcomes. Dr. Carl Hillermann, from the United Kingdom, and Dr. Robert Zanner, from Germany, will discuss their experiences and best practices converting from Luer to NRFit connectors at their facilities. There will be a Q&A session at the end, moderated by Dr. Sean Gamble, from the United States.
