This is how we interpret these sections. In NFPA 99, 2005

Level 1:  Anesthesia is provided.  If ANY mechanical ventilation is to be expected, the facility clearly falls within this category.

Level 2:  No mechanical ventilation.  A common application would be a nursing home, or a hyperbaric chamber.

Level 3:  Medical gas is not required to sustain life, such as the gasses in a dental office.
