    1. Scope

    1.1 This International Standard specifies requirements for low-pressure hose assemblies intended for use with the following medical gases;
    —oxygen;
    —Nitrous oxide;
    —air for breathing;
    —helium;
    —xenon
    —specified mixtures of the gases listed above;
    —air for driving surgical tools;
    —nitrogen for driving surgical tools;
    —nitric oxide/nitrogen mixtures;
    —vacuum.

    It is intended in particular to ensure gas-specificity and to prevent cross-connection between systems conveying different gases.

    These hose assemblies are intended to be used at pressure less than 1 400 kPa.

    1.2 This International Standard specifies the allocation of non-interchangeable screw-threaded (NIST) connectors and diameter-index safety system (DISS) connectors to medical gases and specifies the dimentionsof non-interchangeable screw-threaded (NIST) connectors.

    1.3 This International Standard does not specify:
    —requirements for coaxial hoses used for the supply and disposal of air for driving surgical tools;
    —requirements for electrical conductivity.

    1.4 This International Standard does not specify the intended uses of hose assemblies.
