Vygon Neonatal launches Nutrisafe2 feeding system in India

First company in the country to launch the enhanced neonatal feeding system, to tackle NICU tubing misconnections

Vygon, a frontrunner in the manufacturing and distribution of specialised medical devices, unveiled Nutrisafe2. This cutting-edge enteral feeding system, meticulously designed for neonates, ensures feeding precision and safety in the NICU. With its launch, Vygon addresses the critical challenge of tubing misconnections, a prevalent risk in neonatal care that has led to adverse events, including fatalities.

Neonates within healthcare settings receive medication and other therapies through a variety of tubes and catheters. The connectors of these different delivery systems are often compatible and can be connected. Adverse events, and even deaths, have occurred when medicines, liquid feeding formulas or air have been accidentally delivered through the wrong tube. These errors are called tubing misconnections.

Speaking during the launch, Pavan Choudary, Managing Director of Vygon India, said, “Misconnections in enteral nutrition have been a crucial concern internationally. 40% of all misconnections in neonates are attributed to enteral clinical areas, and the consequences are often serious and sometimes fatal. The launch of Nutrisafe2 is another testimony to Vygon’s commitments to designing products that ensure that nothing unexpected harms patients beyond their illness.”
