Abstract

The inadvertent connection between an enteral feeding system and a nonenteral system such as a vascular line may occur. Intravenous administration of an enteral admixture may lead to severe, sometimes lethal, complications. We report our experience with a new set of enteral devices that may prevent any risk of misconnection.
