ISO 5362:2006 specifies requirements for antistatic and non-antistatic reservoir bags for use with anaesthetic apparatus or lung-ventilator breathing systems. It includes requirements for the design of the neck, size designation, distension and, where relevant, for electrical resistance.
ISO 5362:2006 includes requirements for both single-use and reusable bags. Reusable bags are intended to comply with the requirements of ISO 5362:2006 for the recommended product life.
ISO 5362:2006 is not applicable to special-purpose bags, for example bellows and self-expanding bags.
Bags for use with anaesthetic gas scavenging systems are not considered to be anaesthetic reservoir bags and are thus outside the scope of ISO 5362:2006.
