This is the first edition of CAN/CSA-ISO 5362, Anaesthetic reservoir bags, which is an adoption without modification of the identically titled, ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Standard 5362 (fourth edition, 2006-06-01).
This Standard has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This International Standard specifies requirements for antistatic and non-antistatic reservoir bags for use with anaesthetic apparatus or lung-ventilator breathing systems. It includes requirements for the design of the neck, size designation, distension and, where relevant, for electrical resistance.
This International Standard includes requirements for both single-use and reusable bags. Reusable bags are intended to comply with the requirements of this International Standard for the recommended product life.
This International Standard is not applicable to special-purpose bags, for example bellows and self-expanding bags. Bags for use with anaesthetic gas scavenging systems are not considered to be anaesthetic reservoir bags and are thus outside the scope of this International Standard.
