Medical carbon dioxide gas is normally mixed with other gases and used as a respiratory stimulant.
In its pure form, carbon dioxide is used as an insufflation gas for minimally invasive surgical interventions such as laparoscopy, endoscopy, and arthroscopy to enlarge and stabilize body cavities in order to enhance visibility of the surgical area.
When delivered in a cylinder with a syphon tube, carbon dioxide is also used in cryotherapy to make dry ice at the hospital or in dental offices, where it helps preserve organs, tissues, and blood for storage or shipment.
