Medical electrical equipment - Part 2-49: Particular requirements for the basic safety and essential performance of multifunction patient monitoring equipment (IEC 80601-2-49:2018)

This part of the 80601 International Standard applies to BASIC SAFETY and ESSENTIAL PERFORMANCE requirements of MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITORS as defined in 201.3.201, hereafter referred to as ME EQUIPMENT or MEDICAL ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS. This particular standard applies to MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITORS intended for use in professional healthcare facilities as well as in the EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICE ENVIRONMENT or the HOME HEALTHCARE ENVIRONMENT. The scope of this document is restricted to ME EQUIPMENT or MEDICAL ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS intended for connection to a single PATIENT that has two or more PHYSIOLOGICAL MONITORING UNITS. NOTE For purposes of this document, a pregnant mother and her fetus(es) are considered a single PATIENT. This document does not specify requirements for individual PHYSIOLOGICAL MONITORING UNITS such as ECG, invasive pressure and pulse oximetry. The particular standards related to these PHYSIOLOGICAL MONITORING UNITS specify requirements from the perspective of stand-alone ME EQUIPMENT. This particular standard addresses the additional requirements related to MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITORS.MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITORS can be integrated into other ME EQUIPMENT or MEDICAL ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS. When this is the case, other relevant standards also apply. EXAMPLE 1 MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITOR incorporated into a critical care ventilator where ISO 80601-2-12 also applies EXAMPLE 2 MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITOR incorporated into a homecare ventilator for dependent PATIENT where ISO 80601-2-72 also applies. EXAMPLE 3 MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITOR incorporated into anesthetic workstation where ISO 80601-2-13 also applies. EXAMPLE 4 MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITOR incorporated into haemodialysis equipment, IEC 60601-2-16 also applies. This document does not apply to implantable parts of MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITORS.

Appareils électromédicaux - Partie 2-49: Exigences particulières pour la sécurité de base et les performances essentielles des appareils de surveillance multifonction des patients (IEC 80601-2-49:2018)

L’IEC 80601-2-49:2018 s'applique aux exigences pour la sécurité de base et les performances essentielles des moniteurs multifonctions des patients, désignés ci-après par appareils EM ou systèmes électromédicaux. La présente norme particulière s'applique aux moniteurs multifonctions des patients destinés à être utilisés dans les établissements professionnels de santé ainsi que dans l'environnement des services medicaux d'urgence ou dans l'environnement des soins à domicile. Le domaine d'application du présent document est limité aux appareils EM ou aux systèmes électromédicaux destinés à la connexion à un patient unique qui comportent au minimum deux unités de surveillance physiologique. Le présent document ne spécifie pas d'exigences pour les unités de surveillance physiologique individuelles telles que l'ECG, la pression prélevée directement et l'oxymétrie de pouls. Les normes particulières relatives à ces unités de surveillance physiologique spécifient des exigences dans la perspective d'appareils EM autonomes. La présente norme particulière aborde les exigences supplémentaires relatives aux moniteurs multifonctions des patients. Les moniteurs multifonctions des patients peuvent être intégrés dans d'autres appareils EM ou systèmes électromédicaux. Lorsque c'est le cas, d'autres normes s'appliquent également. Le présent document ne s'applique pas aux parties implantables des moniteurs multifonctions des patients. Cette première édition annule et remplace la deuxième édition de l'IEC 60601-2-49 parue en 2011. Cette édition constitue une révision technique et permet un alignement avec l'édition actuelle de l'IEC 60601-1 et son Amendement, ainsi qu'avec les nouvelles versions des normes collatérales et de leurs amendements. Les modifications majeures concernent l'Article 208, car une grande partie des exigences précédentes sont désormais traitées dans l'IEC 60601-1-8.

Ta standard se uporablja za VEČFUNKCIJSKE MONITORJE ZA NADZOR PACIENTOV, namenjene uporabi v strokovnih zdravstvenih ustanovah in v OKOLJU NUJNIH ZDRAVSTVENIH STORITEV ali v OKOLJU DOMAČE ZDRAVSTVENE OSKRBE. Področje uporabe tega dokumenta je omejeno na ELEKTROMEDICINSKO OPREMO ali ELEKTROMEDICINSKE SISTEME, ki so namenjeni za povezavo s posameznim PACIENTOM, ki ima dve ali več ENOT ZA NADZOROVANJE FIZIOLOŠKIH FUNKCIJ. OPOMBA: V tem dokumentu se nosečnica in njen plod/plodovi štejejo za enega PACIENTA. Ta dokument ne določa zahtev za posamezne ENOTE ZA NADZOROVANJE FIZIOLOŠKIH FUNKCIJ, kot so EKG, naprave za invazivno nadzorovanje krvnega tlaka in pulzni oksimetri. Standardi v zvezi s temi ENOTAMI ZA NADZOROVANJE FIZIOLOŠKIH FUNKCIJ določajo zahteve z vidika samostojne ELEKTROMEDICINSKE OPREME. Ta standard obravnava dodatne zahteve glede VEČFUNKCIJSKIH MONITORJEV ZA NADZOR PACIENTOV. VEČFUNKCIJSKE MONITORJE ZA NADZOR PACIENTOV je mogoče vgraditi v drugo ELEKTROMEDICINSKO OPREMO ALI ELEKTROMEDICINSKE SISTEME. V tem primeru se uporabljajo tudi drugi ustrezni standardi. PRIMER 1: VEČFUNKCIJSKI MONITOR ZA NADZOR PACIENTOV, ki je vgrajen v respirator za intenzivno nego in za katerega se uporablja tudi standard ISO 80601-2-12. PRIMER 2: VEČFUNKCIJSKI MONITOR ZA NADZOR PACIENTOV, ki je vgrajen v respirator za oskrbo od aparata odvisnih pacientov na domu in za katerega se uporablja tudi standard ISO 80601-2-72. PRIMER 3: VEČFUNKCIJSKI MONITOR ZA NADZOR PACIENTOV, ki je vgrajen v delovno postajo za anestezijo in za katerega se uporablja tudi standard ISO 80601-2-13. PRIMER 4: VEČFUNKCIJSKI MONITOR ZA NADZOR PACIENTOV, ki je vgrajen v opremo za hemodializo in za katerega se uporablja tudi standard ISO 60601-2-16. Ta dokument se ne uporablja za dele VEČFUNKCIJSKIH MONITORJEV ZA NADZOR PACIENTOV, ki so namenjeni vsaditvi.

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 80601-2-49 has been prepared by a Joint Working Group of IEC

subcommittee 62D: Electromedical equipment, of IEC technical committee 62: Electrical

equipment in medical practice, and of ISO subcommittee SC3: Lung ventilators and related

equipment, of ISO technical committee 121: Anaesthetic and respiratory equipment.

This first edition cancels and replaces the second edition of IEC 60601-2-49, published in

2011. This edition constitutes a technical revision to align with the current edition and

Amendment to IEC 60601-1, new versions of collateral standards and amendments thereto.

Major changes are in Clause 208 because many of the former requirements are now
addressed by IEC 60601-1-8.
It is published as a double logo standard.

thereto through technical changes.

The requirements of this particular standard take priority over those of the general standard.

A "Particular guidance and rationale" for the requirements of this particular standard is

included in Annex AA. It is considered that knowledge of the reasons for these requirements

will not only facilitate the proper application of the standard but will, in due course, expedite

any revision necessitated by changes in clinical practice or as a result of developments in

technology. However, this Annex AA does not form part of the requirements of this document.

201.1 Scope, object and related standards
Clause 1 of the general standard applies, except as follows:
201.1.1 * Scope
Replacement:
This part of the 80601 International Standard applies to BASIC SAFETY and

ESSENTIAL PERFORMANCE requirements of MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITORS as defined in

201.3.201, hereafter referred to as ME EQUIPMENT or MEDICAL ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS. This

particular standard applies to MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITORS intended for use in

professional healthcare facilities as well as in the EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICE ENVIRONMENT

HOME HEALTHCARE ENVIRONMENT.
or the

The scope of this document is restricted to ME EQUIPMENT or MEDICAL ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS

intended for connection to a single PATIENT that has two or more PHYSIOLOGICAL MONITORING

UNITS.

NOTE For purposes of this document, a pregnant mother and her fetus(es) are considered a single PATIENT.

This document does not specify requirements for individual PHYSIOLOGICAL MONITORING UNITS

such as ECG, invasive pressure and pulse oximetry. The particular standards related to these

PHYSIOLOGICAL MONITORING UNITS specify requirements from the perspective of stand-alone

ME EQUIPMENT. This particular standard addresses the additional requirements related to

MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITORS.MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITORS can be integrated into

other ME EQUIPMENT or MEDICAL ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS. When this is the case, other relevant

standards also apply.

EXAMPLE 1 MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITOR incorporated into a critical care ventilator where ISO 80601-2-12

also applies.

EXAMPLE 2 MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITOR incorporated into a homecare ventilator for dependent PATIENT

where ISO 80601-2-72 also applies.

EXAMPLE 3 MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITOR incorporated into anesthetic workstation where ISO 80601-2-13 also

applies.

EXAMPLE 4 MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITOR incorporated into haemodialysis equipment, IEC 60601-2-16 also

applies.

This document does not apply to implantable parts of MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITORS.

201.1.3 Collateral standards
Addition:

This particular standard refers to those applicable collateral standards that are listed in

Clause 2 of the general standard and Clause 201.2 of this particular standard.

IEC 60601-1-2:2014, IEC 60601-1-6:2010 and IEC 60601-1-6:2010/AMD1:2013, as well as

IEC 60601-1-8:2006 and IEC 60601-1-8:2006/AMD1:2012 apply as modified in Clauses 202,

206 and 208 respectively. IEC 60601-1-3 and IEC 60601-1-9 do not apply. All other published

collateral standards in the IEC 60601-1 series apply as published.
201.1.4 Particular standards
Replacement:

In the IEC 60601 series, particular standards may modify, replace or delete requirements

contained in the general standard and collateral standards as appropriate for the particular

MULTIFUNCTION PATIENT MONITORS under consideration, and may add other BASIC SAFETY and

ESSENTIAL PERFORMANCE requirements.
A requirement of a particular standard takes priority over the general standard.

For brevity, IEC 60601-1:2005 and IEC 60601-1:2005/AMD1:2012 are referred to in this

particular standard as the general standard. Collateral standards are referred to by their

document number.

The numbering of clauses and subclauses of this particular standard corresponds to that of

the general standard with the prefix "201" (e.g. 201.1 in this document addresses the content

of Clause 1 of the general standard) or applicable collateral standard with the prefix "20x",

where x is the final digit(s) of the collateral standard document number (e.g. 202.4 in this

particular standard addresses the content of Clause 4 of the IEC 60601-1-2 collateral

standard, 208.6 in this particular standard addresses the content of Clause 6 of the

IEC 60601-1-8 collateral standard, etc.). The changes to the text of the general standard are

specified by the use of the following words:

"Replacement" means that the clause or subclause of the general standard or applicable

collateral standard is replaced completely by the text of this particular standard.

"Addition" means that the text of this particular standard is additional to the requirements of

the general standard or applicable collateral standard.

"Amendment" means that the clause or subclause of the general standard or applicable

collateral standard is amended as indicated by the text of this particular standard.

Subclauses, figures or tables which are additional to those of the general standard are

numbered starting from 201.101. However, due to the fact that definitions in the general

standard are numbered 3.1 through 3.147, additional definitions in this document are

numbered beginning from 201.3.201. Additional annexes are lettered AA, BB, etc., and

additional items aa), bb), etc.

Subclauses, figures or tables which are additional to those of a collateral standard are

numbered starting from 20x, where "x" is the number of the collateral standard, e.g. 202 for

IEC 60601-1-2, 208 for IEC 60601-1-8, etc.

The term "this document" is used to make reference to the general standard, any applicable

collateral standards and this particular standard taken together.
