Scope

ISO 18777:2005 specifies requirements for the safety and essential performance of transportable liquid oxygen systems which are used as a supply source for oxygen therapy. These devices usually consist of a portable unit to be carried by or with the patient whilst in use and the vessel used to refill the portable unit. These devices are mostly used in home care applications and in health care facilities/institutions. These devices are often used without professional supervision.
Liquid oxygen vessels used as a supply source for oxygen pipeline systems are excluded from this International Standard.
