Medical air differs from ordinary air. It is an ultra-clean, dry, purified air. When mixed with other medical gases, this air can be suitable for a human to breathe. Medical air compressors must be able to deliver this air to patients at any needed moment, on demand. Medical air must be available to patients 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
Medical air is used in hospitals for numerous patient treatments. The gas is available at patient beds, in the operating rooms, in neonatal care and other areas where medical air is required. Medical air is also used for respiratory therapies, during anesthesia and for many other life supporting procedures.
Medical facilities could buy and use their medical air from a cylinder. However, this is expensive and inefficient. Medical air is one of the few gases that a facility can create on the facility site. It is produced by medical air compressors, known in the industry as source equipment. This equipment contains special, state-of-the-art components that compress, clean, dry, and constantly monitor the quality of the medical air.
