MDSI2308 - Ethypharm Aurum pre-filled syringes are incompatible with some needle-free connectors: risk of delay of potentially lifesaving medication



Attaching an incompatible needle-free connector (NFC) to an Ethypharm Aurum pre-filled syringe can block the syringe and prevent delivery of potentially lifesaving medicine. Only compatible NFCs should be used with pre-filled syringes from the Aurum range.
