Status: Valid

Scope
1.1 This International Standard applies to high-pressure flexible connections intended to be connected to cylinders or cylinder bundles with nominal filling pressures up to 25 000 kPa at 15 °C for use with the following medical gases:
- oxygen;
- nitrous oxide;
- air for breathing;
- helium;
- carbon dioxide;
- xenon;
- mixtures of the gases listed above;
- air for driving surgical tools;
