This is the first edition of CAN/CSA-Z23747, Anaesthetic and respiratory equipment - Peak expiratory flow meters for the assessment of pulmonary function in spontaneously breathing humans, which is an adoption, with Canadian deviations, of the identically titled ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Standard 23747 (first edition, 2007-07-15).
This International Standard specifies requirements for peak expiratory flow meters (PEFMs) intended for the assessment of pulmonary function in spontaneously breathing humans.
This International Standard covers all devices that measure peak expiratory flowrate in spontaneously breathing humans either as part of an integrated lung function device or as a stand-alone device.
Planning and design of products applying to this International Standard should consider the environmental impact from the product during its life cycle. Environmental aspects are addressed in Annex E.
Note: Additional aspects of environmental impact are addressed in ISO 14971.
