What is Carbon Dioxide?
Carbon dioxide is a high grade gas made of 100% Carbon dioxide. It is a non-flammable, colourless and odourless gas. It is liquefiable under pressure, with refrigerant properties in the liquid phase and is supplied in cylinders as a liquid under its own vapour pressure of approx. 5,000kPa at 15C.
Uses and Applications
Medical Carbon Dioxide is used with anaesthetics. This is to make sure your blood levels of Carbon Dioxide are satisfactory so that you breathe easily during surgery. Medical Carbon Dioxide also makes you breathe in deeply so that the anaesthetic is rapidly effective and stays effective throughout the surgery. Medical Carbon Dioxide can be used to stimulate your breathing if you stop breathing or if your breathing has been obstructed in some way, but is now cleared. Medical Carbon Dioxide can also be used to calm your breathing if you are over-breathing (hyperventilation).
- Sedation or Anesthesia/Analgesia
- Breath stimulation and regulation
For carbon dioxide use in your practice we have a number of products that are useful in the implementation of this gas. Our Series O Carbon Dioxide regulator by Comweld is a very popular regulator for a portable bottle system. Alternatively if you are going to have your gas piped in to the surgery then the self sealing gas outlet is ideal for the wall fixture option.

If you breathe in too much Medical Carbon Dioxide (more than 6%) you will suffer from headaches, confusion, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, rapid and heavy breathing. At higher levels of Medical Carbon Dioxide (more than 8- 10%) you will be dizzy and become unconscious. At very high levels (more than 30%) in addition to unconsciousness, you will have extremely high blood pressure, very low heart rate and ECG changes. Convulsions may also occur. When you stop breathing in Medical Carbon Dioxide, all these effects are reversed.
