Medical gas is very important for the functioning of hospitals and other healthcare facilities. Medical Air, Carbon Dioxide, Oxygen, Nitrogen and Nitrous Oxide are the most common used medical gases in the hospital areas including recovery areas, patient rooms, operating rooms, and others. Medical Air is a supply of compressed air which can be used in healthcare facilities and hospitals for the distribution of medical gas. Oxygen is used for the inhalation and resuscitation therapy and is essential for every healthcare setting. Carbon Dioxide is used to insufflate medical gas for different less invasive surgeries like arthroscopy, laparoscopy, cryotherapy and endoscopy, and for respiratory stimulation. Nitrogen is used for the storage of cells, blood and tissues in cryogenic temperatures for avoiding the oxidation of the samples. Nitrous oxide is used as both analgesic and anesthetic in various surgical techniques.
Medical gases are referred to as specialized gases that are used for drug processing, medical purposes and several applications of biotechnology. Medical gas includes mixture of gases and pure gases for several medical processes. Oxygen, hydrogen, ammonia, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, boron hydride and nitrous oxide are the major types of medical gases included in pharmaceutical segment. The medical gas equipment includes masks and cylinder that are used for storing and delivering gas.
Medical gases are characterized as medical products and the equipment related with it are called as medical devices. These are often used by healthcare specialists for treatment and diagnostic purposes. In addition, it has various usages in biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry, such as cell culture studies, pharmaceutical manufacturing and drug discovery & development.
