All Life Support Equipment is also high-risk equipment. EC.02.04.01 and EC.02.04.03 now require our customers to determine what is high risk equipment.
We would like your feedback as we develop this list. We will move our updated list online for further review. If you find any of the names inaccurate or redundant, please comment.

We have a couple more questions.
Is there any equipment that is high-risk only when used in special circumstances?
(Quadriplegic care, home care, neonate care, etc)
Are there any ventilators or anesthesia equipment that are not high-risk?
What equipment can harm staff if it fails?
Note: Iron Lung is on the list because NIH reports that they have been reintroduced for neonatal use.
