Medical professionals across the globe dedicate their lives to caring for patients, and in the current climate, pressure on healthcare facilities has never been higher. Our doctors, nurses, surgeons and other key workers are risking their lives daily to ensure the protection of others.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) has many uses in the medical and healthcare industries. As well as being used in minimally invasive surgeries, including endoscopy, arthroscopy and laparoscopy – carbon dioxide is also used in Cryotherapy as well as being used to stimulate the respiratory system after anaesthesia. Undoubtedly, CO2 has many properties which make it the ideal gas of choice in the healthcare and medical industry.

Carbon dioxide does however need to be treated with care. Wherever the gas is used – the immediate atmosphere needs careful monitoring to ensure that levels of CO2 in the atmosphere remain at safe levels. Partly because the gas is impossible to detect with the human senses alone.

Failure to detect and measure levels of CO2, can lead to a build-up of the gas – which can very quickly overwhelm individuals. Typical signs of carbon dioxide poisoning are sickness and nausea, followed by death by Asphyxiation. As CO2 is heavier than air, dangerous pockets of the gas can build up low to the ground.

Typical areas which can have a build-up of carbon dioxide includes poorly ventilated areas where the gas is used. Storage facilities also need to be carefully monitored for leaks, alongside the pipes and tubing which transports carbon dioxide through a building.

At Analox, for almost forty years we have been designing and manufacturing cutting edge carbon dioxide monitoring equipment that are all easy to use and setup – keeping your people safe with minimum fuss.

You can view the full range of these products below, and as always – if you have any questions about monitoring COin your hospital or medical facility, please do just get in touch and we will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

Oxygen Solutions

Enriched oxygen (O2) is widely used in Intensive Care Unit’s (ICU), High Dependency Unit’s (HDU), Accident and Emergency (A&E) and the Emergency Room (ER).  Inert gases such as nitrogen (N2), helium (He), argon (Ar) and liquid nitrogen (LN2) are also used in medical facilities.

Both enriched oxygen (O2) and inert gases can pose a danger to life and should be closely monitored to ensure the safety of those in the area.

Analox offers a choice of wall mount or personal solutions:

Ax60+ O2 CO2 Red Alarm

AX60+

If you need a simple, ready to install and cost-effective gas safety monitor - we’ve got you covered. The Ax60+ is easy to install and already programmed for your local regulations.

O2NE 01

O2NE+

A single point wall mountable safety monitor for oxygen (O2) depletion. This uses a partial pressure oxygen (O2) sensor so it is not cross sensitive to helium (He) ingress.

O2NE 01 1

SAFE-OX+

A single point wall mount safety monitor for oxygen (O2) depletion and enrichment that has a ppO2 sensor.

Aspida 01 CO2 0

ASPIDA

A portable, personal safety monitor for both carbon dioxide (CO2) enrichment and oxygen (O2) enrichment and depletion.

Carbon Dioxide Solutions

Carbon dioxide (CO2), R744 and Dry Ice are also commonly present in medical facilities. These can all have toxic effects on the human body so it is important to have a carbon dioxide (CO2) monitoring system in place.

Ax60+ O2 CO2 Red Alarm

AX60+

If you need a simple, ready to install and cost-effective gas safety monitor - we’ve got you covered. The Ax60+ is easy to install and already programmed for your local regulations.

CO2BUDDY 01 0

CO2BUDDY

A portable, personal safety monitor for carbon dioxide (CO2) enrichment.

Aspida 01 CO2 0

ASPIDA

A portable, personal safety monitor for both carbon dioxide (CO2) enrichment and oxygen (O2) enrichment and depletion.

A50 01

A50

A single point wall mount safety monitor for carbon dioxide (CO2) enrichment.

Multi-Gas Solutions

If you are using multiple gases or are looking for an analyzer, we can also offer a solution.

Ax60+ O2 CO2 Red Alarm

AX60+

If you need a simple, ready to install and cost-effective gas safety monitor - we’ve got you covered. The Ax60+ is easy to install and already programmed for your local regulations.

VENUS PRO 01 0

VENUS PRO

A process gas analyzer for single or multi-gas monitoring.

Aspida 01 CO2 0

ASPIDA

A portable, personal safety monitor for both carbon dioxide (CO2) enrichment and oxygen (O2) enrichment and depletion.

OEM Sensors

For when you want sensors for simple integration into your own analysis system or medical equipment.

VENUS SOLO 01 0

VENUS SOLO

A single gas GFC (Gas Filter Correlation) technology sensor available in: carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O).

53MkIII 01 0

5S MKIII

A single gas NDIR (Non-Dispersive infrared) sensor for carbon dioxide (CO2).

MEC

MEC

A single gas MEC (Mini Electrochemical) sensor available in: carbon monoxide (CO), oxygen (O2), He and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).

Fun Fact

An MRI (Magnetic resonance imaging) machine holds 1700 litres of liquid helium. The helium (He) is a mind-blowing -452.2°F and is used to keep the superconducting magnets cool and prevent overheating as they rotate.
