The Dale ACE Connector (Access Controller for Enteral) connects tubes for in-line feeding, flushing, irrigation, sampling gastric residuals, and medication delivery in a simple and secure manner. A completely closed system eliminates the possibility of potentially infectious splashback and cross-contamination. Fluid flow is controlled by an on/off handle; turns on for feeding and off for tube irrigation, medication administration, gastric residuals, or patient ambulation. The fully integrated auto syringe seal med port eliminates splashback and can be used for medication administration, irrigation, and gastric residual sampling.

The reviews for the ACE Connector are overwhelmingly positive. The item itself was highly regarded, with reviewers praising its quality and affordability. Overall, customers were satisfied with the service they received.
