Pressure regulators for use with medical gases - Part 4: Low-pressure regulators
|Publication Date:||1 January 2012|
|ICS Code (Anaesthetic, respiratory and reanimation equipment):||11.040.10|
This part of ISO 10524 applies to the types of low-pressure regulators listed in 1.2 and intended to be used with the following medical gases in the treatment, management, diagnostic evaluation and care of patients:
⎯ nitrous oxide;
⎯ medical air;
⎯ carbon dioxide;
⎯ specified mixtures of the gases listed above;
⎯ air for driving surgical tools;
⎯ nitrogen for driving surgical tools;
⎯ oxygen-enriched air.
The types of low-pressure regulators covered by this part of ISO 10524 are as follows:
a) low-pressure regulators intended to be connected to terminal units of medical gas pipeline systems complying with ISO 7396-1;
b) low-pressure regulators with integral flow-metering devices intended to be connected to terminal units of medical gas pipeline systems complying with ISO 7396-1;
c) low-pressure regulators intended to be connected to terminal units attached to pressure regulators complying with ISO 10524-1 or ISO 10524-3;
d) operator-adjustable low-pressure regulators for air or nitrogen for driving surgical tools that are an integral part of a medical gas pipeline system complying with ISO 7396-1.
This part of ISO 10524 does not apply to low-pressure regulators integrated within anaesthetic and respiratory equipment.
