Abstract

This document specifies requirements for the respiratory tubing and connectors used to convey respirable gases to a patient in the healthcare environment and provide a safe connection between the gas supply device and the patient interface. Respiratory tubing and connectors are mainly used for delivery of oxygen, but can also be used for respirable air or oxygen/air mixtures and breathable medicinal gas mixtures such as oxygen/nitrous oxide or oxygen/helium mixtures. This document also specifies requirements for respiratory therapy extension tubing.
