Committee replacements sought

ANZCA is seeking representatives to sit on Standards Australia committees that oversee medical gas systems and anaesthetic and breathing equipment.
The role of the Medical Gas Systems Committee (HE-017) is “to prepare standards for equipment used to administer anaesthetic agents to patients, the equipment used to convey the correct anaesthetic agents and medical gases to the device or the patient at controlled flow and pressure and to conduct excess and expired gases safely away from the patient and operating room staff, equipment to monitor the patient undergoing treatment and equipment for use in respiratory therapy and care”.

The prime function of the Anaesthetic and Breathing Equipment Committee (HE-019) is “Standardization of anaesthetic and respiratory equipment and related devices”.

Please contact for more information, including terms of reference for both committees.
