  • The Medical Gas and Vacuum Systems Handbook. Installers, designers, inspectors, and verifiers all need this targeted tool for specialized knowledge about gas, air compressor, and vacuum systems Category 1 through 3. The Handbook combines Chapters 1-5 from the 2018 edition of NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities Code, plus new Chapter 15 dedicated to gas and vacuum systems for dental applications, expert commentary, application guidance, 110 full-colour visuals, supplements, and more.
  • The 2018 edition of NFPA 99: Health Care Facilities Code. Updates in this edition make performance criteria more usable, enforceable, and adoptable — so you can be sure you’ve got safety covered. Changes respond to user needs and new information in an evolving industry. Oxygen concentrator supply sources are permitted for the first time along with the criteria for safe design and installation. A new piping material, corrugated medical tubing, is now allowed. A groundbreaking Chapter 15 includes all of the dental gas and vacuum system requirements together in one place.
  • The 2018 edition of the Health Care Facilities Code Handbook. Help eliminate confusion or mistakes that may jeopardize the safety of patients or staff. The updated Handbook features the complete text of the 2018 edition of NFPA 99, including explanations of the intent behind requirements, NFPA 99-specific CMS K tags, and test procedures for installation tests and verification tests for medical gas systems. More than 160 photographs, practical guidance, and examples visually clarify how provisions are applied in the field. FAQs highlight important concerns of installers, inspectors, and health care facility managers. A Summary of Technical Changes at the beginning of the Handbook highlights revisions to the 2018 edition. Supplements provide valuable information, such as a summary of an ASHE survey on Super Storm Sandy’s impact on essential electrical systems and emergency planning.
