Part 5: Connectors for limb cuff inflation applications

FOREWORD 1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications, Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations. 2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any misinterpretation by any end user. 4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in the latter. 5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any services carried out by independent certification bodies. 6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication. 7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is indispensable for the correct application of this publication. 9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. International Standard IEC 80369-5 has been prepared by a Joint Working Group of subcommittee 62D: Electromedical equipment of IEC technical committee 62: Electrical equipment in medical practice, ISO technical committee 210, Quality management and corresponding general aspects for medical devices and CEN/CENELEC TC3/WG 2, Small-bore connectors. The text of this standard is based on the following documents: FDIS Report on voting 62D/1306/FDIS 62D/1329/RVD

– 6 – IEC 80369-5:2016 © IEC 2016 INTRODUCTION This International Standard was developed because of several incidents, with catastrophic consequences, resultant from inappropriate medication, liquid nutritional formula or air being administered intravenously. Many incidents have been reported, leading to international recognition of the importance of these issues, and a need has been identified to develop specific CONNECTORS for MEDICAL DEVICES and their ACCESSORIES used to deliver fluids in other APPLICATIONS.

The International Standard 80369 series was developed to prevent misconnection between SMALL-BORE CONNECTORS used in different APPLICATIONS. Part 1 specifies the requirements necessary to verify the designs and dimensions of SMALL-BORE CONNECTORS to ensure that: a) they do not misconnect with other

SMALL-BORE CONNECTORS; and

b) they safely and securely connect with their mating half. Part 20 contains the common TEST METHODS to support the performance requirements for SMALL-BORE CONNECTORS. The other parts specify the designs of SMALL-BORE CONNECTORS for the various APPLICATIONS.

This part of International Standard 80369 specifies the design and the dimensions and drawings of SMALL-BORE CONNECTORS intended for use in limb cuff inflation APPLICATIONS. The informative Annex D through Annex G describe the methods by which this design has been assessed. Other parts of International Standard 80369 include requirements for SMALL-BORE CONNECTORS used in different APPLICATION categories.

CONNECTORS manufactured to the dimensions set out within this International Standard are therefore dimensionally incompatible with the SMALL-BORE CONNECTORS used in other APPLICATIONS specified by the standards in this series, unless otherwise indicated. If fitted to the relevant MEDICAL DEVICES and ACCESSORIES, these CONNECTORS should be able to prevent air being delivered intravenously. CONNECTORS manufactured to the dimensions specified in this standard are also NON-INTERCONNECTABLE with any of the other CONNECTORS identified in the International Standard 80369 series of standards for SMALL-BORE CONNECTORS, unless otherwise indicated.
