MedGas installs and maintains medical gas systems delivering piped Oxygen (O2), Nitrous oxide (N2O), Medical air 4 bar, Medical air 7 bar (surgical tool gas), Entonox (50% O2 & 50% N2O) Vacuum (Suction) and AGSS Anesthetic Gas Scavange System.

Medical Gases

Medical gases perform a critical role in health care delivery and are used in a variety of locations.

A medical gas pipeline system (MGPS) is used in health care facilities to provide a safe, convenient and cost-effective delivery system of medical gases to the clinical and nursing staff at the point-of-use: patients.

Oxygen is one of the most extensively used gases and is used for respiratory therapy, life-support and in anaesthetic procedures. Gas pipeline installations also deliver medical air which is mainly used in respiratory therapy, as a power source for patient ventilators, and for blending with oxygen. Medical air is usually supplied from a compressed air plant that utilises high-quality drying and filtration equipment. Surgical air (of medical air quality) is also used, at a higher pressure, to power a variety of surgical tools and other devices such as tourniquets.

Nitrous oxide is used for anaesthetic and analgesic purposes and a helium/oxygen mixture is used to treat patients with respiratory or airway obstruction and to relieve symptoms and signs of respiratory distress.

Medical Gas Pipeline System

Safe medical gas supply throughout medical facilities is carried by a medical gas pipeline system (MGPS). The medical gas system reduces the problems associated with the localised use of gas cylinders such as safety, transporting, storage and noise. Patient safety is paramount in the design, installation, and operation of medical gas pipeline systems.
