What is ISO 8359?

February 19, 2014 by Kristen Cifranic

ISO 8359 is a standard that describes safety requirements for oxygen concentrators. It has recently had someamendments passed that effect how the oxygen concentrators are used in the home care industry. ISO, or the International Organization for Standardization is a worldwide federation of national standard bodies that works together to create industry standards. Depending on the country, accreditation body or other organization that you belong to, you might have to comply with ISO standards. In the US, they are not federal law- but are often followed by accreditation bodies or other inspectors. ISO 8359 was amended recently to include the benefits of new oxygen technology, and because the ISO had new information regarding the role of oxygen concentrators in accelerating fires in the home that have been caused by patient smoking while undergoing oxygen therapy. The ISO recognizes Although these changes cannot prevent such fires, it is hoped that the severity of such fires can be reduced
