BS EN ISO 17510-1:2009 Sleep apnoea breathing therapy. Sleep apnoea breathing therapy equipment

Sleep apnoea is the clinically significant intermittent absences of normal respiration occurring during sleep.
The awareness of the risks associated with sleep apnoea has grown significantly in recent years. As a result, the use of sleep apnoea breathing therapy equipment has become common.

BS EN ISO 17510-1 specifies requirements for equipment intended for sleep apnoea breathing therapy for domiciliary use, ships, aircraft and other transport vehicles and for use in healthcare institutions.

BS EN ISO 17510-1 applies to equipment intended for use with adults and children, but excludes equipment intended for use with neonates.

Jet and very high frequency ventilation and oscillation are not considered in this part of ISO 17510.

ISO 17510 covers sleep apnoea breathing therapy equipment for patient use. ISO 17510-2 applies to masks and accessories used to connect sleep apnoea breathing therapy equipment to the patient.
