IEC 60601-1 Defibrillation Proof Applied Parts

Applied Parts are part of Medical Electrical Devices & Equipment which comes in direct or indirect contact with patient to perform its function. These part are classified into B, BF, CF Applied Parts. Type CF Applied Parts are also known as Defibrillation Proof Applied Parts. This is second classification for protection against electric shock. CF Type Applied is used for direct cardiac application so it is the most stringent classification.

Why Defibrillation Proof Applied Parts should be Isolated ?

During Direct Cardiac application a Defibrillation voltages caused by a defibrillator shown above can create electric hazard if equipment is not isolated properly. So, CF Type applied Parts are isolated from these defibrillator voltages to be able to use them for direct cardiac application.

These Equipment needed to satisfy the requirements given in IEC 60601-1. so it has become important that your Medical electrical Equipment is defibrillation proof against defibrillation voltages. This is one of the most critical test in Medical Standard IEC 60601-1 which ensure that the product is compliant for direct cardiac application or not. As Per IEC 60601-1, a defibrillation voltage is applied to CF Type Applied Parts of Medical Electrical Equipment and its effects are checked on different applied parts, input/output ports & different locations of Equipment.

Some example of Medical Equipment with Type-CF Applied Parts:

High Frequency Surgical Generators

ENT Dermatology Surgical Cautery

Medical Monitoring Equipment

Medical Monitoring Equipment
Medical Monitoring Equipment
