CSA Preface

This is the second edition of CAN/CSA-ISO 10079-3, Medical suction equipment - Part 3: Suction equipment powered from a vacuum or positive pressure gas source, which is an adoption without modification of the identically titled ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Standard 10079-3 (third edition, 2014-05-01). It supersedes the previous edition published in 2003 as CAN/CSA-Z10079-3, Medical suction equipment - Part 3: Suction equipment powered from a vacuum or pressure source (adopted ISO 10079-3:1999, with Canadian deviations).

For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as "CAN/CSA-ISO 10079-3" throughout.

Scope

This part of ISO 10079 specifies safety and performance requirements for medical suction equipment powered from a vacuum or positive pressure gas source generating venture suction. It applies to equipment connected to medical gas pipeline systems or cylinders and venturi attachments. Annex D illustrates the three parts of ISO 10079 by providing a schematic for typical systems.

The equipment can be stand-alone or part of an integrated system.

Additional requirements for suction equipment intended for field and/or transport use are included in this part of ISO 10079.

This part of ISO 10079 does not apply to the following:

a) central power supply (by vacuum/compressed air generation), piping systems of vehicles and buildings, and wall connectors;

b) end-piece such as suction catheters, Yankauer sucker and suction tips;

c) syringes;

d) dental suction equipment;

e) anaesthetic gas scavenging systems;

f) laboratory suction;

g) autotransfusion systems;

h) closed systems for wound drainage;

i) mucus extractors, including neonatal mucus extractors;

j) ventouse (obstetric) equipment;

k) breast pumps;

l) liposuction;

m) uterine aspiration;

n) plume evacuation systems.
