Foundational ASTM healthcare standards re-approved

This is notice of some re-approvals of ASTM standards that are seen and used as foundational standards in healthcare. Re-Approval is a regular thing that ASTM standards must go through in order for them to stay approved, so this is likely just a mechanical re-approval. I was not involved in this re-approval, but suspect that these are re-approved without changes. If I hear otherwise I will let you know.

Many of these re-approvals are very foundational, such as:
