WARNING: Administration of this gas mixture may be hazardous or contraindicated. For use only by or under the supervision of a licensed practitioner who is experienced in the use and administration of gas mixtures, and is familiar with the indications, effects, dosages, methods, and frequency and duration of administration and with the hazards, contraindications and side effects, and the precautions to be taken.

WARNING: CONTAINS GAS UNDER PRESSURE: MAY EXPLODE IF HEATED. MIXTURES CONTAINING LESS THAN 19.5% OXYGEN MAY CAUSE RAPID SUFFOCATION. Keep oil and grease away. Close valve after each use and when empty. Do not handle until all safety precautions have been read and understood. Open valve slowly. Protect from sunlight when ambient temperature exceeds 52 degrees C/125  degrees F. Store and use in a well ventilated place. Use a back flow preventive device in the piping. Use only with equipment cleaned for oxygen service and rated for cylinder pressure. FIRST AID: IF ACCIDENTLY INHALED: If breathing is difficult, remove to fresh air and keep at rest in a position comfortable for breathing. Call a physician. DO NOT REMOVE THIS PRODUCT LABEL.

Helium Oxygen Mixture in the Treatment of Meconium Aspiration Syndrome

Helium—oxygen mixture(heliox) was suggested to be beneficial in meconium aspiration syndrome in previous studies,but the evidence was limited.The aim of the study was to assess the e...

Efficacy of Helium/Oxygen Compared to Air/Oxygen in Severe Exacerbation of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of Helium/Oxygen (He/O2) 78%/22% compared to a conventional Air/O2 mixture in reducing endotracheal intubation rate and morta...

Noninvasive Positive Pressure Ventilation Using Helium:Oxygen Versus Air:Oxygen in Acute Respiratory Failure in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Patients Exposed to Sulfur Mustard

to assess the effectiveness of helium:oxygen mixture adjunct with non-invasive ventilation in sulfur mustard exposed patients with acute decompensation

Helium:Oxygen Noninvasive Positive Pressure Ventilation in Patients Exposed to Sulfur Mustard

to assess the effect of Heliox with Noninvasive positive pressure ventilation to decrease dyspnea and improve physiologic and respiratory measures in patients with a previous exposure to S...

Repeatability in Hyperpolarized 3-Helium With MRI

The main purpose of this study is to assess and test the reproducibility and results of hyperpolarized 3-Helium gas as a contrast agent with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the lungs i...

PubMed Articles [4987 Associated PubMed Articles listed on BioPortfolio]

A proof-of-concept trial of HELIOX with different fractions of helium in a human study modeling upper airway obstruction.

Helium in oxygen (HELIOX) can relieve airway obstruction and lower the work of breathing because it increases the threshold at which turbulent gas flow is induced. Less turbulent and more laminar flow...

Effect of helium preconditioning on neurological decompression sickness in rats.

Decompression sickness (DCS) occurs due to a sudden or excessively rapid reduction in ambient pressure. Bubble-induced spinal cord ischemia is generally considered as a part of neurological DCS pathog...

Layering Transition in Superfluid Helium Adsorbed on a Carbon Nanotube Mechanical Resonator.

Helium is recognized as a model system for the study of phase transitions. Of particular interest is the superfluid phase in two dimensions. We report measurements on superfluid helium films adsorbed ...

Ferromagnetic effects on helium-vacancy complex formation in BCC Fe.

The substitution of helium atom inside BCC Fe results in 1) lattice distortion, 2) the resonance phonon modes, and 3) the scattering center, enhancing the anharmonicity of phonon and magnon. The ferro...

Nanoscale modification of silicon and germanium surfaces exposed to low-energy helium plasma.

Complex surface nanostructures were observed in germanium and silicon samples exposed to low energy (24 or 36 eV ion kinetic energy) helium plasma. Pyramidal growth is observed in germanium across t...
