As stated in 1.3 of IEC 601-1:1988, the requirements of this International Standard take precedence over those of IEC 601-1.
The scope and object given in clause 1 of IEC 601-1:1988 apply except that 1.1 shall be replaced by the following:
This International Standard specifies requirements for the safety of pulse oximeters, as defined in 1.3.12, intended for use in the approximate measurement of the saturation of human arterial haemoglobin, non-invasively.
The field of application includes, but is not limited to
(a) perioperative use;
(b) adult critical care application;
(c) paediatric and neonatal applications;
(d) general determination of saturation on hospitalized and non- hospitalized patients.
Pulse oximeters intended for use in laboratory research applications and bench-type oximeters that require a blood sample from the patient are outside the scope of this International Standard.
