Laboratory

Close

Laparoscopy

To diagnosis, medical gases are insufflated to dilate the abdominal wall and enable visualization of organs.

Close

Pulmonary function test

Specific gaseous mixtures are used to carry out lung functional test for checking blood gaseous exchanges.


Close

MRI

The cooling effect of liquid gas is indispensable to chill MRI magnet.

Close

Acute hypoxia
