CSA - Z168.11-94

Vacuum Devices Used for Suction and Drainage

inactive, Most Current
Organization: CSA
Publication Date: 1 March 1994
Status: inactive
Page Count: 55
scope:

This Standard specifies minimum safety and performance requirements for vacuum devices (see Figure 1). Equipment may be driven by centrally powered piped vacuum systems, fluids, electricity, or manually powered for a variety of applications.

Excluded from the Standard are

(a) central power supply (by vacuum/compressed air generation), piping systems of vehicles and buildings, and wall connectors;

(b) catheters, drains, curettes, and suction tips;

(c) syringes;

(d) anaesthetic gas scavenging systems;

(e) laboratory suction (see CSA Stadnard CAN/CSA-Z305.1);

(f) autotransfusion systems;

(g) passive urinary drainage;

(h) closed systems for wound drainage;

(i) gravity gastric drainage;

(j) orally operated mucous extractors;

(k) peristaltic pumps (where collection device is upstream of the pump); and

(l) breast pumps.

Equipment specified by this Standard may be used for various procedures including the following applications:

(a) liposuction;

(b) naso-gastric drainage;

(c) oral-nasal suction;

(d) thoracic drainage; and

(e) uterine aspiration.

The values given in SI (metric) units are the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
