DISS

English translation: Diameter-Index Safety system (DISS)

English language (monolingual) [PRO]
Medical - Medical: Instruments
English term or phrase: DISS
In a list of products that a company is authorized to import, under the "Ventilator & Accesories" section:

KIT, OPTION, HELIOX, DISS
KIT, OPTION, HELIOX, NIST
KIT, OPTION, HELIOX, AIR LQD
KIT, OPTION, HELIOX, MALE CISS
FLOW SENSOR ASSY, NEO, DISP, WYE

A lot of words are abbreviated to fit the table. From that list I am assuming that:
ASSY = Assembly
NEO = Neonatal (in other items they talk about adult and ped [=pediatric])
DISP = Disposable

I can't really figure out DISS, NIST, MALE CISS, WYE AND AIR LQD but I'm going to ask a separate question for each one of those. In this case, I need help figuring out what DISS means. Thanks!
