CAN/CSA-ISO 5361:18 (R2023)
Anaesthetic and Respiratory Equipment - Conical Connectors - Part 2: Screw-Threaded Weight-Bearing Connectors (Adopted ISO 5356-2:2006, second edition, 2006-09-01, with Canadian deviations)
This is the second edition of CAN/CSA-ISO 5361, Anaesthetic and respiratory equipment — Tracheal tubes and connectors, which is an adoption without modification of the identically titled ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Standard 5361 (third edition, 2016-09-01). It supersedes the previous edition published in 2014 as CAN/CSA-ISO 5361 (adopted ISO 5361:2012).
For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as “CAN/CSA-ISO 5361“ throughout.
This Standard was reviewed for Canadian adoption by the CSA Technical Committee on Perioperative Safety, under the jurisdiction of the CSA Strategic Steering Committee on Health Care Technology & Systems, and has been formally approved by the Technical Committee.
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 provides essential performance and safety requirements for oro-tracheal and naso-tracheal tubes and tracheal tube connectors. Tracheal tubes with walls reinforced with metal or nylon, tracheal tubes with shoulders, tapered tracheal tubes, tracheal tubes with means for suctioning, monitoring or delivery of drugs or other gases, and the many other types of tracheal tubes devised for specialized applications are included in this International Standard, as many specialized tracheal tubes are now commonly used, and all share similar essential requirements as defined in this International Standard.
Endobronchial (including tracheobronchial) tubes, tracheostomy tubes, and supralaryngeal airways are excluded from the scope of this International Standard.
Tracheal tubes intended for use with flammable anaesthetic gases or agents, lasers, or electrosurgical equipment are outside the scope of this International Standard.
NOTE References  to  deal with laser surgery of the airway.
