Medical electrical equipment - Part 2-71: Particular requirements for the basic safety and essential performance of functional near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) equipment
|Publication Date:||1 June 2015|
|ICS Code (Diagnostic equipment):||11.040.55|
This International standard applies to the BASIC SAFETY and ESSENTIAL PERFORMANCE of FUNCTIONAL NIRS EQUIPMENT intended to be used by themselves, or as a part of an ME SYSTEM, for the production of FUNCTIONAL NIRS EQUIPMENT output for adjunctive diagnostic purposes, hereinafter referred to as ME EQUIPMENT.
Not included within the scope of this particular standard are:
a) the part of ME EQUIPMENT, if provided, that measures oxygen saturation of the haemoglobin in the micro vessels (capillaries, arterioles and venules); b) near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) tissue oximeter equipment, which is not intended for obtaining FUNCTIONAL NIRS EQUIPMENT output;
c) pulse oximeter equipment, which is not intended for obtaining FUNCTIONAL NIRS EQUIPMENT output. The requirements for pulse oximeter equipment are found in ISO 80601-2-61.
d) frequency-domain and time-domain equipment for functional near-infrared spectroscopy, which may require different test procedures than defined herein.
e) FUNCTIONAL NEAR-INFRARED SPECTROSCOPY EQUIPMENT which measure changes in the concentration of chromophores other than oxy- and deoxy-haemoglobin, which may require different test procedures than defined herein.
