Medical suction equipment - Part 1: Electrically powered suction equipment - Safety requirements (ISO 10079-1:1999)
SS-EN ISO 10079-1:2015
This part of ISO 10079 specifies minimum safety and performance requirements for medical and surgical suction equipment (see Figure 1) for health care facilities such as hospitals, for domiciliary care of patients and for field andtransport use.
Although such equipment may be driven by centrally powered piped vacuum systems, compressed gases and electricity, or be manually powered for a variety of applications, this part of ISO 10079 addresses only mains electricity- and battery-powered suction equipment.
NOTE See also annex M in this part of ISO 10079.
ISO 10079-1 is one of a series of International Standards based on IEC 60601-1:1988; in IEC 60601-1 (the "General Standard"), this type of International Standard is referred to as a "Particular Standard". As stated in 1.3 of IEC 60601-1:1988, the requirements of this part of ISO 10079 take precedence over those of IEC 60601-1.
