This International Standard applies to disposable and reusable, as well as woven and non-woven materials used as surgical drapes and other patient protective covers which claim to be laser resistant.
The purpose of this standard is to provide a standardized method for testing and classifying surgical drapes and other patient protective covers with respect to laser-induced hazards. An appropriate classification system is given. It is not the purpose of this standard to serve as a general fire safety specification, and as such, this standard does not cover other sources of ignition. It also does not cover the issue of laser-induced secondary ignition.
All materials reflect portions of the beam and it is necessary for the user to decide whether specular reflectance may be a hazard. This measurement, however, is not covered in this standard.
