    We're helping with design/equipment sourcing for a stand alone sleep lab. This fits into the Category 4 system. The 2012 code book (4.1.4) says to refer to the "category 4 requirements as defined in this code".  My book doesn't have a category 4 section. What do you suggest for a O2 manifold (1 tank, 1 x 1, 2 x 2 auto switchover, etc., etc.)??

    I'm a little troubled that the system is being listed as a Category 4:

    Some sleep patient are already on a Dr. Prescription for Oxygen and use it at night. This Sleep Lab is supplying them with the drug during the sleep study. In my opinion, their would be an impact on patient care, in point its a Category 3 and by many others (Lawyers) Its a Category 2:
