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

    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.

    What are the safety precautions for liquid nitrogen?

    Liquid nitrogen can also be found commonly used for cryobiology and cryotherapy applications. Safety precautions for liquid nitrogen include wearing  proper PPE, implementing compressed gas safe procedures and installing a safety monitor.

    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.

    Oxygen Deficiency Safety AlarmWhat is a safe oxygen detector?

    In order to measure respiration, physicians and health care professionals use several oxygen and carbon dioxide gas solutions. The most common monitor used is the RAD-0002-ZR Oxygen Deficiency Safety Alarm.
