Suction Catheters for Use in the Respiratory Tract (Adopted ISO 8836:1997, second edition, 1997-11-15, with Canadian deviations)
This International Standard specifies requirements for suction catheters made of plastic materials and intended for use in suction of the respiratory tract.
Specialized suction catheters, e.g. those with more than one lumen, are excluded from the scope of this International Standard. Angled-tip suction catheters (e.g. Coudé catheters) are not considered to be specialized and are therefore included in the scope.
