Testing of small-bore connectors for limb cuff inflation applications - IEC 80369-5

Small-bore connectors for liquids and gases in healthcare applications - Part 5: Connectors for limb cuff inflation applications


This IEC 80369-5 part specifies the design and the dimensions and drawings of small-bore connectors intended for use in limb cuff inflation applications.

The test methods include:

  • Leakage by pressure decay
  • Positive pressure liquid leakage
  • Subatmospheric-pressure air leakage
  • Stress cracking
  • Resistance to separation from axial load
  • Resistance to separation from unscrewing
  • Resistance to overriding
  • Disconnection by unscrewing
