Medical Air

A reliable supply of medical air gas is essential in hospitals, specifically supplying Intensive Care Units and operating rooms. Medical Air refers to a clean supply of compressed breathing air used in hospitals and healthcare facilities to distribute medical gas.

Medical air is mainly supplied via a medical gas pipeline system where the air is manufactured as required using compressors. Medical air cylinders are used as the independent back-up supply to the pipeline system.

Medical air cylinders are used to supply air to the patient where pipelines supplies are not available. The main uses of medical air in healthcare are:

  • Driving ventilators and incubators, where it provides uncontaminated and controlled air flows helping to reduce high concentration of oxygen exposure
  • As a carrier gas for anesthetic agents
  • As a power source for driving surgical tools in the operating room
