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.
As well as the risk of COVID-19, key workers and patients are also at risk of exposure to several gases, such as enriched oxygen (O2), nitrogen (N2), helium (He) and carbon dioxide (CO2).
Analox has developed a number of personal and fixed solutions designed to enhance safety and protect the lives of those in the medical industry.
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.
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.
If you are using multiple gases or are looking for an analyzer, we can also offer a solution.
For when you want sensors for simple integration into your own analysis system or medical equipment.
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.
