Helium is a colourless, odourless inert gas that does not have any anaesthetic quality. It can protect organs against reperfusion injury (I/R damage). Breathing in helium before or after an ischemic episode can reduce the size of any myocardial infarction. Gezina Oei describes how long and when the gas has to be administered in order to reduce I/R damage.
