Standard(Included in ASCA pilot)
ISO 80601-2-70 Second edition 2020-11
Medical electrical equipment - Part 2-70: Particular requirements for the basic safety and essential performance of sleep apnoea breathing therapy equipment
Scope/Abstract
This document is applicable to the basic safety and essential performance of sleep apnoea breathing therapy equipment, hereafter referred to as ME equipment, intended to alleviate the symptoms of patients who suffer from obstructive sleep apnoea by delivering a therapeutic breathing pressure to the respiratory tract of the patient. Sleep apnoea breathing therapy equipment is intended for use in the home healthcare environment by lay operators as well as in professional healthcare institutions.

* Sleep apnoea breathing therapy equipment is not considered to utilize a physiologic closed-loop-control system unless it uses a physiological patient variable to adjust the therapy settings.

This document excludes sleep apnoea breathing therapy equipment intended for use with neonates.

This document is applicable to ME equipment or an ME system intended for those patients who are not dependent on mechanical ventilation.

This document is not applicable to ME equipment or an ME system intended for those patients who are dependent on mechanical ventilation such as patients with central sleep apnoea.

This document is also applicable to those accessories intended by their manufacturer to be connected to sleep apnoea breathing therapy equipment, where the characteristics of those accessories can affect the basic safety or essential performance of the sleep apnoea breathing therapy equipment.

Masks and application accessories intended for use during sleep apnoea breathing therapy are additionally addressed by ISO 17510. Refer to Figure AA.1 for items covered further under this document.

Rationale for Recognition
This standard is relevant to medical devices and is recognized on its scientific and technical merit and/or because it supports existing regulatory policies.
Transition Period
FDA recognition of ISO 80601-2-70 First Edition 2015-01 [Rec# 1-115] will be superseded by recognition of ISO 80601-2-70 Second edition 2020-11 [Rec# 1-151]. FDA will accept declarations of conformity, in support of premarket submissions, to [Rec# 1-115] until July 7, 2024. After this transition period, declarations of conformity to [Rec# 1-115] will not be accepted.
