This International Standard applies to the BASIC SAFETY and ESSENTIAL PERFORMANCE of a CLINICAL THERMOMETER in combination with its ACCESSORIES, hereafter referred to as ME EQUIPMENT. This standard specifies the general and technical requirements for electrical CLINICAL THERMOMETERS. This standard applies to all electrical CLINICAL THERMOMETERS that are used for measuring the body temperature of PATIENTS. CLINICAL THERMOMETERS can be equipped with interfaces to accommodate secondary indicators, printing equipment, and other auxiliary equipment to create ME SYSTEMS. This standard does not apply to auxiliary equipment. ME EQUIPMENT that measures a temperature not as a primary purpose, but as a secondary function, is outside the scope of this standard.
