Medical Service Standards and Medical Equipment Standards

    ASTM's medical service and equipment standards cover emergency medical services and anesthetic and respiratory equipment. The various clinical operations specified here mostly include emergency medical services and dispatch, multiple casualty incident response, ambulatory operations, and other first-aid techniques performed by trained professionals. These medical service standards are helpful to hospitals and clinics, medical schools, and other health care institutions in performing both emergency and non-emergency clinical operations accurately and safely.
