  • This part of ISO 10079 specifies safety and performancerequirements for manually powered medical suction equipmentintended for oro-pharyngeal suction. It covers equipment operatedby foot or by hand or both (see Figure 1). Non-electrical suctionequipment which may be integrated with electrical equipment isincluded in the scope of this part of ISO 10079.

    This part of ISO 10079 does not apply to electrically poweredsuction equipment, whether mains electricity- or battery-powered,which is dealt with in ISO 10079-1, nor to suction equipmentpowered from a vacuum or pressure source which is dealt with in ISO10079-3, nor to the following:

    a) central power supply (by vacuum/compressed air generation),piping systems of vehicles and buildings, and wall connectors;

    b) cathether tubes, drains, curettes and suction tips;

    c) syringes;

    d) dental suction equipment;

    e) waste gas scavenging systems;

    f) laboratory suction;

    g) autotransfusion systems;

    h) passive urinary drainage;

    i) closed systems for wound drainage;

    j) gravity gastric drainage;

    k) orally operated mucous extractors;

    l) suction equipment where the collection container isdownstream of the vacuum pump;

    m) equipment marked as suction unit for permanenttracheostomy;

    n) ventouse (obstetric) equipment;

    o) neonatal mucous extractors;

    p) breast pumps;
