Medical gases have become indispensible for many forms of modern diagnosis and therapy. They are used, in respiratory support, as anaesthetic agents, to offer pain relief and to diagnose and treat a number of clinical conditions. In addition, medical gases are used to operate and calibrate medical equipment.
Classified as pharmaceuticals or medical devices, medical gases must comply with the highest standards of safety, quality and efficacy.
Linde is dedicated to providing pharmaceutical and medical-grade gas products and services that enable healthcare professionals to deliver optimal therapy for their patients in hospitals, clinics, intermediate care centres, emergency centres and patients’ homes. Over the years, we have also developed and supported a wide range of gas-enabled medical innovations and healthcare therapies that address the growing needs of the healthcare sector, helping health authorities and professionals meet rising cost pressures while improving quality of care.
