a)    a terminal unit conforming with ISO 9170-1 of a medical gas pipeline system conforming with ISO 7396-1:2016;

b)    the pressure outlet of a regulator conforming with ISO 10524-1:2018; or

c)    to the pressure outlet of a valve integrated pressure regulator (VIPR) conforming with ISO 10524-3 (see 5.2 gas inlets).

This document applies to the following types of flow control devices (FCDs):

a)    flowmeters;

b)    flowgauge FCDs; and

c)    fixed orifice FCDs.

NOTE       Flow control devices that are classed as medical electrical equipment can be subject to additional requirements of IEC 60601-1.

This document applies to flow control devices for the following gases:


    oxygen 93 %;

    nitrous oxide;

    medical air;

    carbon dioxide;

    oxygen/nitrous oxide mixture 50/50 (% volume fraction);

    oxygen-enriched air;


    xenon; and

    specified mixtures of the gases listed above.

NOTE Flow control devices can be available for other gases.

This document does not apply to flow control devices that are:

a)    for use with gases for driving surgical tools;
