Medical applications for the healthcare industry

Reduced Work of Breathing (WOB) through Heliox

Heliox is mainly used in conditions of large airway narrowing (upper airway obstruction from tumors or foreign bodies and vocal cord dysfunction). Heliox-assisted therapy is in the areas of controlled MV (CMV) and synchronized intermittent mandatory ventilation (SIMV) modes of ventilation.

Relief in painful procedures through Entonox®

ENTONOX® is delivered to the patients easily via inhalation which is non-invasive, patient-controlled, safe and on-demand basis. It can be administered via face mask or mouthpiece attached to a demand valve system. It is designed for self-administration by the patient under medical supervision. Entonox is used safely in combination with other opiates or other analgesics.

Demand valve: enables self-regulated pain relief

The basis of the inhalation unit is the demand valve. The benefits of the demand valve are:-

  • easy to use
  • Deliver the gas mixture to the patient at approximate atmosphere pressure.
  • Ensure the gas will not flow when the cylinder is turned on unless a negative pressure is produced via face mask or mouthpiece and tubing.
  • Prevent expired breath from entering the handset.
  • The amount of gas released is determined by the demand of the patient.
  • Ensure the patient will not receive an overdose of a gas because the face mask or mouthpiece will drop off when patient becomes drowsy.
  • Stimulation of nerve centers, blood analysis, and insufflation through medical Carbon dioxide

    In healthcare, up to 5% carbon dioxide is added to oxygen for stimulation of breathing after apnea and to stabilize the O2/CO2 balance in blood.

    Carbon dioxide can be mixed with upto 50% oxygen, forming an inhalable gas; this is known as Carbogen and has a variety of medical and research uses.

    In laparoscopic surgery, surgery is performed through small incisions using long instruments and video cameras. To create a working and viewing space in the abdomen, carbon dioxide (CO2) is insufflated to separate the abdominal wall from internal organs.

    Critical respiratory support in various respiratory therapies through Medical Airy

    Mechanical Ventilation

    Used as a carrier gas to supply respirators in respiratory assistance in anaesthesia, resuscitation, ventilation


    treatments where medical air may be used as a gas vector for the inhaled drugs when oxygen supplementation is not required

    Driving of surgical tools, Cryobiology and Dermatology through medical Nitrogen

    Nitrogen is used to drive medical tools and equipment as a pneumatic source. Liquid nitrogen is used in cryo-preservation of blood, sperm, embryos, bone marrow and other biological samples without compromising their intrinsic qualities. In Dermatology, nitrogen is used for cryosurgery and cryotherapy, enabling the treatment of cutaneous micro-trauma.

    Numerous ways in which medical oxygen is used in medical applications are

  • Cyanosis of recent origin as a result of cardio-pulmonary disease
  • Surgical trauma, chest wounds and rib fracture
  • Shock, severe hemorrhage and coronary occlusion
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Hyperpyrexia
  • Major trauma, i.e. road traffic accidents and gunshot wounds
  • In the management of sudden cardiac and respiratory arrest, whether drug induced or traumatic
  • In the resuscitation of the critically ill, when the circulation is impaired
  • In neo-natal resuscitation.
