At EspriGas, we make understanding medical gas simple, so you can provide the best patient care.
Common Medical Gases
As a vital gas used in hospitals, clinics, surgeries and intensive care wards, oxygen is used to treat individuals with lung diseases and to treat hypoxemia and hypoxia. Because oxygen expands 600 times from liquid to gas, large amounts are usually transported as a liquid.
Oxygen E, H, Vertical Gas Liquid (VGL) 180 and Micro-Bulk
Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
CO2 is used as an insufflation gas for minimal invasive surgery to enlarge and stabilize body cavities to provide better visibility of the surgical area. It can also be used with oxygen as a respiratory stimulant and as a cooling agent in the form of dry ice.
Carbon Dioxide E and H
Nitrous Oxide (N2O)
Nitrous Oxide is used as an anesthetic and analgesic in medical and dental practices.
Nitrous Oxide E and H
Used as a shielding gas for packing medicines, medical nitrogen gas is also used to dry medical equipment. In liquid form, it’s used to keep cells alive during study and is also used to freeze-off moles in dermatology practices. It even can be used to pre-cool some MRI machines and kill diseased tissue in cryosurgery.
Nitrogen H, T, E and VGL 230, 180, 160
Liquid helium is used in clinics and hospitals to cool Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) machines.
