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.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/ directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

Introduction

Terminal units are the points on a medical gas pipeline system where the operator makes connections

and disconnections for the supply of specified medical gases to anaesthetic machines, lung ventilators

or other items of medical equipment. Terminal units are also used for vacuum pipeline systems. A

wrong connection can create a hazard to the patient or operator. It is important that terminal units and

their components be designed, manufactured, installed and maintained in such a way as to meet the

requirements specified in this document.
This document pays particular attention to
— suitability of materials,
— gas-specificity,
— cleanliness,
— testing,
— identification, and
— information supplied.

This document contains information for the installation and testing of terminal units prior to use.

Testing of terminal units prior to use is critical to patient safety, and it is essential that terminal units

are not used until full testing in accordance with ISO 7396-1 has been completed.

Annex A contains rationale statements for some of the requirements of this document. The clauses and

subclauses marked with an asterisk (*) after their number have corresponding rationale contained in

Annex A, included to provide additional insight into the reasoning that led to the requirements and

recommendations that have been incorporated in this document. It is considered that knowledge of the

reasons for the requirements will not only facilitate the proper application of this document, but will

also expedite any subsequent revisions.
Annex B contains environmental aspects that should be considered.

connectors and designed to conduct a medical gas (3.7) at pressures less than 1 400 kPa and vacuum

3.6
medical device gas

any gas or mixture of gases intended by the manufacturer to be used for human beings for the purpose of

— diagnosis, prevention, monitoring, treatment or alleviation of disease,

— investigation, replacement or modification of the anatomy or of a physiological process,

— control of conception,

and does not achieve its principal intended action in or on the human body by pharmacological,

immunological or metabolic means, but which may be assisted in its function by such means

Note 1 to entry: In Europe, these gases are classified as a medical device in accordance with Directive 93/42/EC.

3.7
medical gas

any gas or mixture of gases having properties for treating or preventing disease in human beings which

may be used in or administered either with a view to restore, correct or modify physiological functions

by exerting a pharmacological, immunological or metabolic action, or to make a medical diagnosis

Note 1 to entry: This is also sometimes referred to as medicinal gas.

Note 2 to entry: In Europe, this is classified as a medicinal product in accordance with Directive 2001/83/EC.

3.8
medical gas pipeline system

complete system which comprises a supply system, a monitoring and alarm system and a distribution

system with terminal units at the points where medical gases (3.7) or vacuum may be required

3.9
medical gas supply system
either
a) a medical gas pipeline system, or

b) an installation having no permanent pipeline system but employing a medical gas (3.7) supply

source complete with pressure regulator(s)
3.10
nominal distribution pressure

pressure which the medical gas pipeline system (3.8) is intended to deliver at the terminal units

Note 1 to entry: Unless otherwise specified, pressures in this document are expressed as gauge pressures

(i.e. atmospheric pressure is defined as 0 kPa gauge pressure).
