CO2 Monitors for Scientific and Medical Industries

    Scientists, Lab Technicians, and Researchers all work around inert gases in their respected work environments, yet recognize that although the inert gas can maintain pH levels, preserve specimens, and monitor apparatus; the gases can also be extremely hazardous to those working in and around them at too high of concentrations.

    Whether it's your patient or test subject, there's little room for error. That's why our gas detection devices contain the most sensitive, precise, and accurate sensing technologies; providing you with the utmost in gas safety monitoring or analysis solutions.

    What is medical CO2 used for?

    Carbon Dioxide is popularly used for insufflation of patients or for surgeries pertaining to laparoscopy, endoscopy, and cryotherapy. It is often used to enlarge and stabilize the body cavity. It is often used most commonly because it is non-combustible, cost-effective, and easily excretable from the respiratory system. 

    5 most common gases used in medicine:

    1. Medical air - is used in ICU and NICU environments, supplied by specific air compressors to patient care areas
    2. Oxygen - is used commonly in every healthcare setting for inhalation therapy or resuscitation.
    3. Carbon Dioxide - is used across less invasive surgeries and operations.
    4. Nitrogen - is used as medical support for powering surgical tools or equipment.
    5. Nitrous Oxide - is used in numerous surgical procedures as an anesthetic and analgesic.

    Importance of CO2 Monitors in Healthcare

    While these gases all have many uses in the medical and scientific industry, they do need to be treated with care. Depending on where and how the gas is used, careful monitoring is in order to ensure that the levels of the atmosphere remain at a safe level for those working in and around the inert gas. Failure to detect measurements can lead to severe negative health effects ranging from sickness, dizziness, asphyxiation, or even fatality.
