Connector Standards. The ISO 80369-6 neuraxial
connector standard was published on March 2016.
The goal is to reduce the Incidence of medical device
misconnections and improve patient safety  by creating

in clinical practice. The workshop will explore the newly launched DeltaVen
and how to benefit from it, including patient outcome. Sharing best
practices from UK and Europe and will be followed up with a hands-on session.
