Preventing Medical Mishaps: Understanding the Importance of ISO 80369-5

Patient with IV

Medical device manufacturers are subject to many rigorous safety standards to ensure that patient’s lives are not endangered due to equipment related errors. One of these standards, ISO 80369-5, establishes a general framework and guidance for small-bore connectors intended for use in healthcare applications, promoting patient safety by reducing the risk of misconnections between different delivery systems.

ISO 80369-5 is a section of the ISO 80369 series of international standards titled “Small-bore connectors for liquids and gases in healthcare applications” which specifically applies to limb cuff applications. “Small-bore” refers to the size of the opening of the connector, in this case less than 8.5 mm. This article delves into the relevance of ISO 80369-5, its impact, and the steps medical device companies are taking to adhere to this standard.

World Hypertension Day – Accuracy

WHD-Accuracy-H Are you measuring your BP accurately?

Did you know that high blood pressure, or hypertension, is the leading cause of a preventable death worldwide? In fact, over 10 million lives are lost to high blood pressure every year, and tragically, only half of this affected population is aware of the condition’s impact on the quality and longevity of their lives.

If hypertension is infamously fatal, then why is a large portion of the population unaware or mistreated for this condition? A study published in the American Journal of Hypertension suggests that a discrepancy could increase by home blood pressure monitoring devices measuring inaccurately up to 70% of the time, causing many hypertensive individuals to go undiagnosed by clinicians.

Here at SunTech, we take great pride in manufacturing quality blood pressure monitors that enable people globally to accurately measure their blood pressure. To ensure correct measurement techniques, we have compiled a list of factors to consider while you are roll up your sleeves and getting to know your numbers.
