Medical electrical equipment - Part 2-56: Particular requirements for basic safety and essential performance of clinical thermometers for body temperature measurement (ISO 80601-2-56:2017)

ISO 80601-2-56:2017 applies to the basic safety and essential performance of a clinical thermometer in combination with its accessories, hereafter referred to as me equipment. This document specifies the general and technical requirements for electrical clinical thermometers. This document applies to all electrical clinical thermometers that are used for measuring the body temperature of patients.
Clinical thermometers can be equipped with interfaces to accommodate secondary indicators, printing equipment, and other auxiliary equipment to create me systems. This document does not apply to auxiliary equipment.
Me equipment that measures a body temperature is inside the scope of this document.
ISO 80601-2-56:2017 does not specify the requirements for screening thermographs intended to be used for the individual non-invasive human febrile temperature screening of groups of individual humans under indoor environmental conditions, which are given in IEC 80601‑2‑59[4].
If a clause or subclause is specifically intended to be applicable to me equipment only, or to me systems only, the title and content of that clause or subclause will say so. If that is not the case, the clause or subclause applies both to me equipment and to me systems, as relevant.
Hazards inherent in the intended physiological function of me equipment or me systems within the scope of this document are not covered by specific requirements in this document except in IEC 60601‑1:2005+A1:2012, 7.2.13 and 8.4.1.
NOTE Additional information can be found in IEC 60601?1:2005+A1:2012, 4.2.

Dieses Dokument spezifiziert die allgemeinen und technischen Anforderungen für elektrische MEDIZINISCHE THERMOMETER. Dieses Dokument gilt für alle MEDIZINISCHEN THERMOMETER, die für die Messung der Körpertemperatur von PATIENTEN verwendet werden.
MEDIZINISCHE THERMOMETER können mit Schnittstellen zum Einbinden von Sekundäranzeigen, Druckgeräten und anderen Zusatzgeräten ausgestattet werden und somit ME SYSTEME bilden. Dieses Dokument gilt nicht für Zusatzgeräte.
ME GERÄTE, die eine KÖRPERTEMPERATUR messen, liegen innerhalb des Anwendungsbereiches dieses Dokuments.
Dieses Dokument spezifiziert nicht die Anforderungen an Wärmebildkameras, die für das individuelle nicht-invasive Fieber(temperatur)-Screening von Menschengruppen oder Einzelpersonen unter Innenraum-Umgebungsbedingungen eingesetzt werden; diese sind in IEC 80601 2 59[4] angegeben.
Ist ein Abschnitt oder Unterabschnitt nur speziell für die Anwendung auf ME GERÄTE oder ME SYSTEME vorgesehen, ist dies aus Überschrift und Inhalt des Abschnittes oder Unterabschnittes ersichtlich. Ist das nicht der Fall, trifft der Abschnitt oder Unterabschnitt, wo anwendbar, auf das ME GERÄT und das ME SYSTEM zu.
GEFÄHRDUNGEN, die sich aus der vorgesehenen physiologischen Wirkungsweise von ME GERÄTEN oder ME SYSTEMEN im Anwendungsbereich dieses Dokuments ergeben, sind nicht durch besondere Anforderungen in diesem Dokument erfasst, ausgenommen in IEC 60601 1:2005+A1:2012, 7.2.13 und 8.4.1.

Annex ZA
(informative)
Relationship between this European Standard and the essential
requirements of Directive 93/42/EEC [OJ L 169] aimed to be covered

This European Standard has been prepared under a Commission’s standardization request M/023

concerning the development of European Standards related to medical devices to provide one voluntary

means of conforming to essential requirements of Council Directive 93/42/EEC of 14 June 1993

concerning medical devices [OJ L 169].

Once this standard is cited in the Official Journal of the European Union under that Directive,

compliance with the normative clauses of this standard given in Table ZA.1 confers, within the limits of

the scope of this standard, a presumption of conformity with the corresponding essential requirements

of that Directive and associated EFTA regulations.

NOTE 1 Where a reference from a clause of this standard to the risk management process is made, the risk

management process needs to be in compliance with Directive 93/42/EEC as amended by 2007/47/EC. This

means that risks have to be reduced ‘as far as possible’, ‘to a minimum’, ‘to the lowest possible level’, ‘minimized’

or ‘removed’, according to the wording of the corresponding essential requirement.

NOTE 2 The manufacturer’s policy for determining acceptable risk must be in compliance with Essential

Requirements 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11 and 12 of the Directive.

NOTE 3 This Annex ZA is based on normative references according to the table of references in the European

foreword, replacing the references in the core text.

NOTE 4 When an Essential Requirement does not appear in Table ZA.1, it means that it is not addressed by this

European Standard.
