|Publication Date:||1 September 2016|
|ICS Code (Anaesthetic, respiratory and reanimation equipment):||11.040.10|
This International Standard specifies requirements for oropharyngeal airways of plastics materials and/or rubber, including those with a reinforcement insert made of plastics materials and/or metal.
This International Standard is not applicable to metal oropharyngeal airways, nor to requirements concerning flammability of oropharyngeal airways.
Flammability of oropharyngeal airways, for example, if flammable anaesthetics, electrosurgical units, or lasers are used, is a well-recognized hazard. It is addressed by appropriate clinical management, which is outside the scope of this International Standard.
This International Standard is not applicable to supralaryngeal airways without an internal, integral sealing mechanism.
