Laryngoscopic fittings — Part 1: Conventional hook-on type handle-blade fittings

Cancels and replaces the first edition (1984). Lays down critical dimensions and considerations for the junction of any blade and any handle of a hook-on type laryngoscope to allow engagement, lamp illumination and disengagement through multiple cycles. Does not cover: the blade form or handle design other than the interchangeability aspects of the connection between the blade and the handle; the measurement and specification of the lamp illumination intensity; disposable or flexible laryngoscopes, or laryngoscopes designed for surgery; laryngoscopes without a lamp in the blade.

Foreword
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. Esch 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
a vote.
International Standard ISO 7376-1 was prepared by Technical Committee
lSO/TC 121, Anaesthetic and respiratory equipment, Subcommittee
SC 2, Tracheal tubes and other equipment.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition
(ISO 7376-1:1984), of which it constitutes a technical revision.
ISO 7376 consists of the following Parts, under the general title
Laryngoscopic fittings:

- Part 2: Ministure electric lamps - Scre w threads and sockets for

- Part 3: Fibre-Öllumina ted re-usable rigid laryngoscopes

Introduction
In clinical anaesthesia and resuscitation, a variety of Paryngoscopes are
widely used for direct laryngoscopy. Because there is a clinical need for
a variety of blade forms and sizes, they are usually manufactured as
detachable blade and handle units.
There are two basic types of rigid laryngoscopes: those in which the light
Source is in the blade with a power Source in the handle, and those in
which the light Source is in the handle with Optical fibres being used to
transmit light to the blade. The former type is specified in this part of
ISO 7376 and ISO 7376-2, while the latter type is specified in ISO 7376-3.
The aim of ISO 7376 is to promote ready interchangeability between
blades and handles of the hook-on type made by different manufacturers.
The primary objective of this patt of ISO 7376 is to ensure interchange-
ability concerning mechanical fit and electrical contact between the
hook-on type of conventional laryngoscope handles and blades. This is
achieved by specifying the critical dimensions of the handle hook-on fit-
ting, combined with the use of two test pieces that affect interchange-
ability with the blades and by designating the minimum Performance
requirements. The secondary objective is to provide test procedures and
values for Performance.
No attempt has been made in this part of ISO 7376 to standardize either
the blade form or handle design except at the handle-blade fitting con-
nection between the two.
