Oxygen Deficiency Safety AlarmScientists, 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 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.

What is the best gas detector for cold storage?

Cold storage facilities have special conditions that present significant challenges to those working in and around hazardous gases. The most common gas safety monitor used is the RAD-0002-ZR Oxygen Deficiency Safety Alarm. This device can handle temperatures that swing from -50°F to +140° and accurately monitor to safeguard against oxygen deficient environments.
