In an innovative leap forward, Vygon, a frontrunner in the manufacturing and distribution of specialized medical devices, unveiled Nutrisafe2. This cutting-edge enteral feeding system, meticulously designed for neonates, ensures feeding precision and safety in NICU.

Speaking during the launch, Mr. Pavan Choudary, Managing Director of Vygon India, said, “Misconnections in enteral nutrition has been a crucial concern internationally. 40% of all misconnections in neonates are attributed to enteral clinical area, 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.”

Mr. Deepak Saluja, V.P. Operations of Vygon India said, We are the first company in India to address this issue and are proud to launch this innovative and patented enteral feeding system. Having demonstrated its effectiveness in over 40 global markets over two decades, Nutrisafe2 is anticipated to make a profound impact in Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) across India.”

The devices launch comes in response to this critical healthcare issue, underscored by a 2014 Sentinel Event Alert from The Joint Commission. The alert shed light on the severe consequences of tubing misconnections, including enteral feeding solutions mistakenly introduced into IV lines, leading to several reported fatalities. Nutrisafe2 emerges as an effective safeguard against such risks, engineered specially for neonates to ensure safety in neonatal enteral feeding.
