Medical Equipment

Could you please advise if under Sharia Laws, medical equipment which are used on the body, such as needles, drips etc. need to be authorized for use by the Sharia Council, or other authoring body? If so could you direct me to finding out how such items are deemed fit for use, and whether there is a list of products covered by such authorization.
