This document specifies a method of testing the continuous wave (cw) laser resistance of the shaft of a tracheal tube and the cuff regions including the inflation system of tracheal tubes designed to resist ignition by a laser.
NOTE 1 When interpreting these results, the attention of the user is drawn to the fact that the direct applicability of the results of this test method to the clinical situation has not been fully established.
NOTE 2 The attention of the users of products tested by this method is drawn to the fact that the laser will be wavelength sensitive and tested at the wavelength for which it is intended to be used. If tested using other wavelengths, explicitly state the power settings and modes of delivery.
CAUTION — This test method can involve hazardous materials, operations and equipment. This document provides advice on minimizing some of the risks associated with its use but does not purport to address all such risks. It is the responsibility of the user of this document to establish appropriate safety and health practices and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

ISO 11810:2015 is applicable to disposable and reusable, as well as woven and non-woven materials used as surgical drapes and other patient-protective covers which claim to be laser-resistant. The purpose of this International Standard is to provide a standardized method for testing and classifying surgical drapes and other patient-protective covers with respect to laser-induced hazards. An appropriate classification system is given. It is not the purpose of this International Standard to serve as a general fire safety specification, and as such, this International Standard does not cover other sources of ignition.
All materials reflect portions of the beam and it is necessary for the user to decide whether specular reflectance can be a hazard. This measurement, however, is not covered in this International Standard.
The test procedure can be used to assess the laser induced flammability properties of non-laser-resistant items
NOTE Users of products tested by this method are cautioned that the laser resistance of a surgical drape and/or patient-protective cover will be wavelength sensitive and that a surgical drape and/or patient-protective cover are better tested at the wavelength for which it is intended to be used. If tested using other wavelengths, it is necessary to explicitly state the power settings and modes of delivery.

It specifies the safety requirements relating to noise hazards. It specifies noise measurement methods, installation and operating conditions to be used for the test, together with the information to be supplied by manufacturers of such equipment.
ISO/IEC 11553-3:2013 applies to those laser processing machines and hand-held laser processing devices included in the scope of ISO/IEC 11553-1 and ISO/IEC 11553-2.
Noise emission characteristics include emission sound pressure levels at work stations and the sound power level. Declared noise emission values permit comparison of laser processing machines and hand-held laser processing devices on the market.
The use of this noise test code (see Annex A) ensures the reproducibility of the determination of the characteristic noise emission values within specific limits. These limits are determined by the accuracy grade of the noise emission measuring method used. Noise emission measurements specified by ISO/IEC 11553-3:2013 meet the requirements of an engineering method (accuracy grade 2).

This document specifies methods for measuring beam widths (diameter), divergence angles and beam
propagation ratios of laser beams. This document is applicable to general astigmatic beams or unknown
types of beams. For stigmatic and simple astigmatic beams, ISO 11146-1 is applicable.
Within this document, the description of laser beams is accomplished by means of the second order
moments of the Wigner distribution rather than physical quantities such as beam widths and divergence
angles. However, these physical quantities are closely related to the second order moments of the
Wigner distribution. In ISO/TR 11146-3, formulae are given to calculate all relevant physical quantities
from the measured second order moments.

ISO 12005:2003 specifies a method for determining the polarization status and, whenever possible, the degree of polarization of the beam from a continuous wave (cw) laser. It can also be applied to repetitively pulsed lasers, if their electric field vector orientation does not change from pulse to pulse.
ISO 12005:2003 also specifies the method for determining the direction of the plane of oscillation in the case of linearly polarized (totally or partially) laser beams. It is assumed that the laser radiation is quasi-monochromatic and sufficiently stable for the purpose of the measurement.
The knowledge of the polarization status can be very important for some applications of lasers with a high divergence angle, for instance when the beam of such a laser shall be coupled with polarization dependent devices (e.g. polarization maintaining fibres). ISO 12005:2003 also specifies a method for the determination of the state of polarization of highly divergent laser beams, as well as for the measurement of beams with large apertures.
