Medical Air is a Lifesaver

At Pure Line Plumbing, we have had the pleasure of interacting with numerous healthcare facilities for over 25 years. We’ve learned a thing or two about healthcare in our line of work. Perhaps the most important knowledge we have gained is just how crucial medical air is to the industry and the patients it helps.

Medical Air is a Lifesaver

To say that medical air is a lifesaver is an understatement. The high-quality air provides a pure and accurate air concentration for breathing assistance. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it saved countless lives when it was pumped into ventilators to deliver much-needed oxygen to patients with breathing difficulties. Without medical air, pure oxygen would have been toxic to most patients.

Additionally, medical air is essential in delivering anesthetic agents. It is a carrier for nitrous oxide, halothane, and other gases commonly used to sedate surgical and dental patients. This ensures that the patients don’t feel a pinch as they go under the knife. Also, it delivers just the right amount of anesthesia to keep the patient comfortable and breathing throughout the procedure.

And let’s not forget about its impact on surgical tools. Medical air can be used to sterilize them, ensuring they are sanitary before use. Furthermore, certain tools have pneumatic systems that rely on medical air to work. As far as we are concerned, the list of tools is endless, from blood pressure monitors to brakes and tables in the operating room.

Given the importance of medical air to the healthcare industry, we understand the need to provide it pure and reliably. Our oil and moisture-free medical air supplies meet industry standards, and we have Med Gas certifications to prove it.
