Description / Abstract:

1. Scope

1.1 This specification covers reservoir bags for use with anesthesia breathing systems. For purposes of this specification, the reservoir bag includes the neck, body, and neck bushing, if provided. Special-purpose bags, for example, bellows, evacuation, and self-expanding bags are excluded from the scope of this specification.

1.2 The following subjects are covered: material, construction, neck, size, compliance (pressure-volume relationship), electrical conductivity, marking and labeling, and test methods to substantiate compliance with the requirements. Alternative test methods may be employed provided they can be shown to be equivalent or better. (A rationale is given in Appendix X1.)

NOTE 1--This specification supersedes ANSI Standard Z 79.4-1974.

1.3 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.
