ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide
federation of national standards bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of
preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO
technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which
a technical committee has been established has the right to be represented
on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-
governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO
collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission
(IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.
Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are
circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an International
Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting
International Standard ISO 14408 was prepared by Technical Committee
ISO/TC 121, Anaesthetic and respiratory equipment, Subcommittee SC 2,
Tracheal tubes and other equipment.
Annex A of this International Standard is for information only.

ISO ISO 14408:1998(E)
This International Standard is intended to provide a standard format for
marking of tracheal tubes which are designed for laser surgery and which
have been tested for laser resistance in accordance with ISO 11990. It is
intended that by limiting the requirements to the disclosure of information
relevant to safety and performance where appropriate, determined in
accordance with standard test methods, a manufacturer will not be limited
in his choice of design and materials.

Tracheal tubes designed for laser surgery — Requirements for
marking and accompanying information
This International Standard specifies marking requirements and requirements for information to be supplied by the
manufacturer of cuffed and uncuffed tracheal tubes and related materials designed for laser resistance.2 Normative reference
The following standard contains provisions, which, through reference in this text, constitute provisions of this
International Standard. At the time of publication, the edition indicated was valid. All standards are subject to
revision, and parties to agreements based on this International Standard are encouraged to investigate the
possibility of applying the most recent edition of the standard indicated below. Members of ISO and IEC maintainregisters of currently valid European and International Standards.
ISO 11990: – , Optics and optical instruments — Lasers and laser-related equipment — Determination of laserresistance of tracheal tube shafts.
For the purposes of this International Standard, the following definitions apply.3.1 tracheal tube
tube designed for insertion through the larynx into the trachea to convey gases and vapours to and from the trachea[ISO 4135:1995]
inflatable balloon permanently attached around the tracheal tube near the patient end to provide an effective sealbetween the tube and the trachea
3.3 laser-resistant tracheal tube
tracheal tube specifically designated by the manufacturer for use during laser surgery3.4 laser-resistant tracheal tube treatment
covering and/or surface treatment that adapts or modifies non-laser-resistant tracheal tubes for use in laser surgery3.5 upper anatomical airway; upper airway
airway above the laryngotracheal junction
3.6 laser-resistant portion
that portion of the tracheal tube intended by the manufacturer to be laser-resistant4 Marking and labelling
NOTE Marking of tracheal tubes, connectors, packages, inserts and information to be supplied by the manufacturer shouldcomply with EN 1041.

4.1 Use of symbols
The requirements given in 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4 may be met by the use of the appropriate symbols in accordance withISO 7000 or EN 980.
4.2 Marking of tracheal tubes
4.2.1 The following shall be permanently marked on or affixed to any component of the tracheal tube:a) the name and/or trademark of the manufacturer or supplier;
b) the nominal inside diameter designated by the manufacturer for the tracheal tube;
c) model identification, if necessary to distinguish between similar products from the same manufacturer;
d) for cuffed tracheal tubes, a reference to any preparation designated by the manufacturer as essential for
protection of the cuff from ignition (e.g. "inflate cuff with saline or water before use").
4.2.2 Additional marks may be provided (optional) to assist in positioning the tracheal tube within the trachea. If the
marks are applied to a laser-resistant area of the tube, the test to determine laser resistance values required for thegraph in 5.4 shall be carried out directly upon these markings.
4.2.3 Any component of a la
