One is them may be oxygen servicing, id have to look, but the operator must have the authorization. I know other EMS stuff is in there. It also still requires compliance with the other parts of 43, like maintenance log entries, etc.
Found it...

(g) Except for holders of a sport pilot certificate, the holder of a pilot certificate issued under part 61 may perform preventive maintenance on any aircraft owned or operated by that pilot which is not used under part 121, 129, or 135 of this chapter. The holder of a sport pilot certificate may perform preventive maintenance on an aircraft owned or operated by that pilot and issued a special airworthiness certificate in the light-sport category.

(i) Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph (g) of this section, in accordance with an approval issued to the holder of a certificate issued under part 135 of this chapter, a pilot of an aircraft type-certificated for 9 or fewer passenger seats, excluding any pilot seat, may perform the removal and reinstallation of approved aircraft cabin seats, approved cabin-mounted stretchers, and when no tools are required, approved cabin-mounted medical oxygen bottles, provided—

(1) The pilot has satisfactorily completed an approved training program and is authorized in writing by the certificate holder to perform each task; and

(2) The certificate holder has written procedures available to the pilot to evaluate the accomplishment of the task.

Interesting, my last outfit had me fill the medbed. It required tools to open and close valves on the oxygen tanks and the lines into the bed and I was shown how to fill it by a nurse. That was the company procedure.

I was also told I could fill the aircraft crew oxygen but never got around to it. We had the airport fuelers do it who to my knowledge were not A&Ps. Never a write up. Won't do that again.

If it needs a tool, it needs a write up.
Keep that in mind to keep the Feds off your back.
