This is the first edition of CAN / CSA-Z10651-4, Lung Ventilators - Part 4: Requirements for Manual Motor Power Resuscitators. This is the adoption, with Canada-specific requirements, of ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 10651-4 (first edition, 2002-03-01), which has the same title. This CSA Standard and CAN / CSA-Z10651-5-08, Medical Lung Ventilators - Specific Requirements for Basic Safety and Essential Performance - Part 5: Gas-Enabled Emergency Resuscitators replace CAN / CSA -Z8382-94, Resuscitators for Human Beings.
Resuscitators whose motive power is electric or gas are not dealt with in this European Standard.
Note: Annex B presents the rationale for the requirements of this part of the European Standard. The articles and paragraphs that are the subject of justifications bear an R) after their number.
