Carbon Dioxide

Carbon Dioxide

Carbon Dioxide is used for insufflating patients—blowing into the body cavity for less invasive surgeries like laparoscopy, arthroscopy, endoscopy, and cryotherapy. It is used to enlarge and stabilize the body cavity for greater visibility and access to surgical areas.

Carbon dioxide can also provide respiratory stimulation when mixed with oxygen, during and after the administration of anesthesia.

Carbon Dioxide can also be used for cryotherapy, where temperatures of -76° C can be achieved. Using this technique, body cells are destroyed by the process of crystallization.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is an odorless, colorless gas. CO2 may be piped in large hospitals but more likely comes from a tank.

In addition, helium gas is used in critical operations.

Helium gas is an alternative to carbon dioxide surgeons are exploring to insufflate a patient’s abdomen undergoing laparoscopic abdominal procedures.

It is a gas that can help prevent respiratory acidosis—a condition that can occur when the lungs cannot remove all of the carbon dioxides the body produces.

Helium gas, when combined with oxygen, can also be to aid the treatment of asthma, emphysema, and other respiratory conditions.
