Explanation:
müsste das sein und wenn mich mein Latein nicht ganz verlassen hat, dann ist das was mit "Bedarfs-"

Siehe auch dieses Patent dazu:

U. S. Pat. No. 5,269,771 discloses a needleless introducer with a hemostatic valve. The valve mechanism includes a plunger biased by a coil spring which, upon actuation, spreads a pair of resilient valve elements. This design may not be fully opened by a male luer fitting at the "short" side of the dimension, and the sealing depends upon the resilient valve elements closing against themselves. Further the valve uses several different materials and is complex to assemble.

Valves and adapters of the type described above fall into a medical device category often referred to as "PRN" from the Latin pro re nata, i.e., as the circumstances may require. A typical example of this type usage might be on a catheter left in place for three days. During this three day usage duration, a bolus dosage of a medicament might be given every 4 hours using a protocol including at each dosage interval: a) flushing the catheter to check patency; b) administration of the medicament; and c) flushing the medicament from the catheter with heparin or saline. During the period of usage, this typical protocol results in 54 operations of the valve, i.e., 6 times a day, 3 steps each time and 3 days. In between each dosage, the valve must not leak, but it must be readily reopened. Previously, the introduction may have been made using hypodermic needles penetrating a resilient septurn. However, a septum is likely to start leaking after multiple penetrations and given the concerns about risks to practitioners and service personnel from "sharps," hospitals have changed many protocols to reduce the use of pointed hypodermic needles. The PRN adapters as described above have been developed to address the hospitals' needs.

Vielen Dank! Die Frage war ja nicht nur PRN, sondern zusammen mit connector, in der Diskussion auch nochmal ausdrücklich nachgefragt. - Anscheinend gibt es für diese Produktklassse (noch) keine deutsche Übersetzung.
