6 common gases in the hospital

The gases that are common in all hospitals inside and outside of Iran and are used for patients in different departments are as follows.

Oxygen is the most basic gas for life and is the most important gas used in hospitals. (Especially with the spread of corona disease and lung involvement of patients) Oxygen gas is used medically to supplement the oxygen of patients suffering from oxygen deficiency. It is a medical gas that is needed in the medical care sector and is used for resuscitation and inhalation treatment of the patient. Hospitals use oxygen when patients have difficulty breathing or when the lungs cannot breathe oxygen.

Medical air refers to a clean source of compressed air that is used to dispense medical gas. This air is free of pollution and particles, does not have oil or odor and has a high percentage of purity. When the patient is in the operating room, whether it is an emergency or not, the surgeon relies on a medical air compressor to help the patient breathe easily while under anesthesia. It supplies medical air not only in operating rooms but also to any air-based medical equipment such as resuscitators, oral surgery instruments, orthopedic instruments and ventilators.

Carbon dioxide is another gas of high use in hospitals, because for minimally invasive surgeries (laparoscopy, endoscopy and arthroscopy) carbon dioxide is used as an insufflation gas (blowing into the body cavity). It is used to enlarge and stabilize body cavities in order to create a better view of the surgical area. Carbon dioxide is also commonly used in abdominal and thoracic surgeries where the surgeon may need to move different organs to reach a specific area of the body.

Nitrogen gas is a colorless, odorless, non-toxic and non-flammable gas, it is inactive at room temperature and does not react chemically with common metals. Nitrogen gas can be transported to the hospital in liquid form. For this purpose, nitrogen gas is taken several hundred degrees below zero to produce liquid nitrogen. If you are in direct contact with liquid nitrogen for a long period of time, body tissue is frozen, so liquid nitrogen is also used as a cryogen for freezing and preserving blood, tissue and other biological samples and for freezing and destroying diseased tissues (cancer and skin lesions). ) is also used.

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, was originally used as a dental anesthetic but is now widely used in a wide variety of surgical procedures for anesthesia and analgesia. The exact mechanism of action of nitric oxide is unknown, but its effects occur in the pain centers of the brain and spinal cord. The release of neurotransmitters is thought to activate descending pain pathways to prevent pain transmission. In childbirth, ambulance care, dental care, etc., nitrous oxide is combined with oxygen to relieve pain. Of course, due to its anesthetic effects, it is used specifically in surgery and dentistry.

Helium gas is used in some of the most critical operations in the medical industry. This material has many applications due to its distinct physical and chemical properties, i.e. low density, low solubility and high thermal conductivity. Helium gas is combined with oxygen to treat asthma, emphysema and other respiratory problems. Of course, this combination is not used to treat the underlying diseases, but to reduce the resistance of the airways and make the respiratory muscles more comfortable until the definitive treatments work and give results.
