This is the fifth edition of CSA ISO 8836, Suction catheters for use in the respiratory tract, which is an adoption without modification of the identically titled ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Standard 8836 (fifth edition, 2019-12). It supersedes the previous edition published in 2015 as CAN/CSA-Z8836 (adopted ISO 8836:2014).

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 document specifies dimensions and requirements for both open and closed suction catheters made of flexible materials and intended for use in suctioning of the respiratory tract.
