    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This specification covers breathing systems and components employed with anesthesia gas machines for humans. This specification considers the circle system as a whole and some of its components individually. A particular emphasis is placed upon component arrangement in the circle absorber-type system, and submits a system of standard description and notation. Excluded are ventilators for use during anesthesia, Mapelson nonrebreathing type systems, as well as breathing systems and related components of dental analgesia machines.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F29 on Anesthetic and Respiratory Equipment, this specification was withdrawn in July 2014 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers breathing systems and components employed with anesthesia gas machines for humans. This specification considers the circle system as a whole and some of its components individually. A particular emphasis is placed upon component arrangement in the circle absorber-type system, and submits a system of standard description and notation. Excluded are ventilators for use during anesthesia, Mapelson nonrebreathing type systems, as well as breathing systems and related components of dental analgesia machines. (For rationale, see Appendix X1.)

    1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
