CPC (Colder Products Company) introduces the BCF Series Bayonet Body couplings. The new bayonet coupling connects tubing between a blood pressure cuff and a blood pressure monitor.
The ISO 80369 small-bore connector standard defines connectors to help busy healthcare professionals prevent misconnections with the many devices they use every day. The BCF Series was designed with that concept in mind—as a connector solution created for use with new or existing systems using bayonet-style inserts.
The widespread use of standard luers that work with multiple devices led to the ISO initiative. Patient injuries and deaths have occurred due to medical misconnections. In contrast, when specific connectors are used for a particular application, it lessens or prevents the chance of misconnection.
The BCF Series female connectors offer leak-free performance. A simple-to-use thumb latch enables quick connections and disconnections with one hand. An audible click confirms a secure connection. The coupling’s main body is made of ABS thermoplastic and it fits tubing sizes from 1/8” to 5/32" (3.2 mm to 4.0 mm). The BCF Series is compatible with IS0 80369-5-compliant FitQuik™ Bayonet Fittings and standard blood pressure male fittings used with many existing monitoring systems.
