Helium inhalation is no laughing matter
Balloons at parties are to be enjoyed but customers should be warned that an attempt to sound like a cartoon character can be fatal.
When inhaled, balloon gas displaces air in the lungs in the way similar to water when a person drowns.
Inhaling balloon gas cuts off oxygen supply to the body. Without oxygen it only takes a few seconds before an individual can become dizzy or unconscious and can stop breathing.
Inhaling balloon gas under pressure straight from the cylinder is even more dangerous. Air sacs in the lungs are likely to rupture and death follows almost immediately, as victims literally drown in their own blood.
Elgas and the balloon industry are deeply concerned about the misuse of Balloon Gas. Ensure that customers are advised to educate family and friends to understand the dangers. Ensure that customers are also advised to always supervise children and teenagers.
