Technical Standards

Technical Standards describe technical procedures or practices that are quantitative or measurable. They often include specific recommendations for patient management, equipment specifications or settings. Technical Standards are based on analysis of current literature, expert opinion, open forum commentary and formal consensus. They are intended to set a minimum level of acceptable technical proficiencies and equipment performance and may be modified as determined by individual circumstances and available resources.
