– oxygen;
– nitrous oxide;
– medical air;
– helium;
– carbon dioxide;
– xenon;
– specified mixtures of the gases listed above;
– air for driving surgical tools;

– oxygen-enriched air.
1.2 The types of low-pressure regulators covered by this part of ISO 10524 are as follows:
a) low-pressure regulators intended to be connected to terminal units of medical gas pipeline systems
complying with ISO 7396-1;
b) low-pressure regulators with integral flow-metering devices intended to be connected to terminal units of medical gas pipeline systems complying with ISO 7396-1;
c) low-pressure regulators intended to be connected to terminal units attached to pressure regulators
complying with ISO 10524-1 or ISO 10524-3;
d) operator-adjustable low-pressure regulators for air or nitrogen for driving surgical tools that are an integral part of a medical gas pipeline system complying with ISO 7396-1.
