In hospitals, medical air is used mainly for ventilation and aerosol therapy and during anaesthesia:
When treating respiratory diseases such as asthma and COPD, an effective way of delivering drug treatment is to direct it straight to the lungs by inhalation. Nebulisers are used to administer inhaled medication to patients who cannot use conventional inhalers due to the severity of their condition. Medical air may be used to drive the drug treatment to the nebuliser where liquid medication is converted to a mist that can be inhaled.
Medical air is used as a carrier gas for volatile agents in inhalational anaesthesia. It may also be used with nitric oxide as a substitute for supplemental oxygen to reduce the high concentration of oxygen exposure.
Some patients are dependent on a reliable, high quality supply of medical air to protect their delicate and sensitive respiratory systems.
Medical air is also used as a source of driving surgical tools in hospitals
