Air Liquide Healthcare's Medical Air Cylinder

Medical Air

A critical respiratory adjunct

Medical Air USP is essential for patient therapy at most healthcare facilities. We offer commercially produced Medical Air USP and specialize in providing safe, reliable, and cost-effective on-site production systems designed to ensure therapeutic quality.


Medical Air USP is a critical respiratory adjunct to numerous respiratory therapies. Applications include:

  • Mechanical ventilation: medical air may be used as a carrier gas to supply respirators in respiratory assistance in anaesthesia, resuscitation, ventilation and isolette environmental control
  • Nebulisation: in aerosol treatments, medical air may be used as a gas vector for the inhaled drugs when oxygen supplementation is not required
  • Hyperbaric chambers

Patients such as neonates and people suffering from acute respiratory distress syndrome have delicate respiratory systems sensitive to oxygen toxicity. They often require a precise and reliable concentration of Medical Air USP to control their oxygen exposure and breathe properly.

In order to ensure superior quality, we make our own high-grade Medical Air USP from 21% Oxygen USP and 79% Nitrogen NF.

Quality Control

Most Medical Air USP dispensed through a facility's central pipeline system is made onsite with compressor systems.

To help ensure your patients are administered precise Medical Air USP, we developed aerALin™  our parametric batch release quality control system. It validates your Medical Air USP to meet good manufacturing practices and reflect the production quality control experience from our plants.
