IS/ISO 10651-3 : 1997 Lung Ventilators for Medical Use Part 3 Particular Requirements for Emergency and Transport Ventilators

ICS 11.040.10

MHD 11


This Indian Standard (Part 3) which is identical with ISO 10651-3 : 1997 ‘Lung ventilators for medical use — Part 3: Particular requirements for emergency and transport ventilators’ issued by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has been adopted by the Bureau of Indian Standards on recommendation of the Anaesthetic, Resuscitation and Allied Equipment Sectional Committee and approval of the Medical Equipment and Hospital Planning Division Council.

This standard has been published in several parts. The other parts in this series are:

Part 5 Gas-powered emergency resuscitators

Part 6 Home-care ventilatory support devices

The text of the ISO Standard has been approved as suitable for publication as an Indian Standard without deviations. Certain terminologies and conventions are, however, not identical to those used in the Indian Standards. Attention is particularly drawn to the following:

a) Wherever the words ‘International Standard’ appear referring to this standard, they should be read as ‘Indian Standard’.

b) Comma (,) has been used as a decimal marker, while in Indian Standards, the current practice is to use a point (.) as the decimal marker.
