The medical gas supply systems used in hospitals and other health care facilities are for supplying specialized gases and gas mixtures to various locations in the facility. These include: medical air; nitrous oxide; oxygen; carbon dioxide; medical vacuum; nitrogen; and waste anesthetic gas disposal. These medical gas systems are usually color coded to enable the identification of their contents. Unfortunately, coding systems and specifications differ by jurisdiction. Thus, the text and labeling may be a more reliable indicator of their contents. The medical gas pipe installers will make sure that emergency shut-off valves or zone valves are provided to be able to stop the flow of gas to a certain area in case there is a fire or substantial leak, and also for servicing. Valves may be placed at the entrance to departments, with access provided via emergency pull-out windows.

Medical gas piping will typically use special grade copper and it is similar to other types of plumbing in that it requires running pipe through walls, ceilings, and floors. There are two kinds of copper piping used for medical gas. These are the the Type K, which is thicker and heavier, and the Type L or thinner copper wall. All medical gas pipes should be in compliance with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 99 standards for positive pressure medical gas plumbing. The medical pipes are used to deliver different kinds of medical grade gases from a utility room where the gases are stored in tanks to the various rooms in the medical or health care facility, including a surgical center, emergency room, or hospital.

The fire safety standard indicates the requirements for various levels of health care systems depending on the risk to patients, visitors, and staff, in order to minimize the risk of of fires, electrical accidents, and explosions. Thus, medical gas plumbers who will be handling the installation of the medical gas plumbing system, the piped vacuum systems, and the supporting components for manifolds, outlets, zone valves, and alarms, will need to have a certification as an ASSE 6010 installer.

Medical gas plumbers will also have to be knowledgeable regarding various oxygen storage methods, including high-pressure oxygen tanks, chemical compounds, and cryogenics. Oxygen is transported in the form of liquefied oxygen and and this is placed in liquid-oxygen storage containers that are usually located outside the hospitals and other healthcare facilities. The liquid oxygen will go through heat exchangers that that transforms it into gas form before it enters the medical building. Oxygen may also be contained in smaller cylinders as compressed gas. It is important to note that these are fire and explosion hazards and the medical gas plumbers should know how to minimizing risks while working with medical gas piping with oxygen.
