This Standard specifies requirements for the RESPIRATORY TUBING and connectors used to convey respirable gases to a patient in the healthcare environment and provide a safe connection between the gas supply device and the PATIENT INTERFACE. RESPIRATORY TUBING and connectors are mainly used for delivery of oxygen, but can also be used for respirable air or oxygen/air mixtures. This standard also specifies requirements for respiratory therapy EXTENSION TUBING.
This standard is written following the format of the General standard for airways and related equipment, ISO 18190:2016. The requirements in this device-specific standard take precedence over any conflicting requirements in the General standard.
