This is the first edition of CAN/CSA-ISO 5360, Anaesthetic vaporizers - Agent-specific filling systems, which is an adoption without modification of the identically titled ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Standard 5360 (third edition, 2012-01-15). It replaces the previous edition published in 2008 as CAN/CSA-Z5360 (adopted ISO 5360:2006). For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as CAN/CSA-ISO 5360 throughout.
With regards to the caution statement in Clause 14.2.2, the French equivalent is Attention : l'opération de remplissage spécifique à l'agent ne peut être assurée avec des flacons sans anneaux.
This International Standard specifies requirements, including dimensions, for agent-specific filling systems for agent-specific anaesthetic vaporizers.
This International Standard does not specify construction materials.
NOTE 1 For recommendations on materials, see Annex A.
Because of the unique properties of desflurane, dimensions for this agent have not been specified in this International Standard.
NOTE 2 Designs of connection systems, which only permit engagement of the agent-specific bottle adaptor to the bottle when the bottle collar is in place, are encouraged.
