Standard NBN EN ISO 5364:2011
Anaesthetic and respiratory equipment - Oropharyngeal airways (ISO 5364:2008)
11.040.10 Anaesthetic, respiratory and reanimation equipment
ISO 5364:2008 specifies requirements for oropharyngeal airways of plastics materials and/or rubber, including those with a reinforcement insert made of plastics materials and/or metal. Flammability of oropharyngeal airways, for example if flammable anaesthetics, electrosurgical units or lasers are used, is a well-recognized hazard. It is addressed by appropriate clinical management, which is outside the scope of this International Standard.
