helium

 (He) [he´le-um]
a chemical element, atomic number 2, atomic weight 4.003. (See Appendix 6.) Helium is a chemically inert element that is odorless, tasteless, and noncombustible. Because of its low density it is easily moved through the air passages and therefore requires little effort in breathing on the part of the patient in respiratory distress. Although helium itself has no chemical therapeutic value, when combined with oxygen it facilitates delivery of oxygen to the lungs (see helium-oxygen therapy). It should be noted that helium causes the voice to be high-pitched and the spoken word difficult to understand. This should be explained to the patient with the assurance that the effect is harmless and temporary.
helium-oxygen therapy the administration of a mixture of helium and oxygen (commonly 80 per cent He and 20 per cent O2, or 70 per cent He and 30 per cent O2); used in the management of airway obstruction associated with bronchospasm or bronchial asthma. The He-O2 mixture is about one third the density of air. This reduces turbulent flow and the patient effort required for ventilation.

A typical She-Ra: Princess of Power episode saw She-Ra and her friends--including the suspiciously queer archer Bow, ditzy witch Madame Razz, owl-like creature Kowl, and trusty unicorn Swift Wind--attempting to liberate the planet Etheria from the diabolical Hordak and his Evil Horde.

It is not healthy for persons the age of parents to get involved in arguments about what kind of birthday cake the Care Bears should make for He-Man, nor what a Beanie Baby might have in common with a Mighty Morphin Power Ranger of the same color.
(In Branded to Kill, the film-within-a-film projections have an even more surreal, he-Man Ray quality.) On one level, Youth of the Beast operates as a nasty, pachinko-machine burlesque of contorted triple-cross plotting; on another, it uses the incongruous beauty of that rose as a spore gradually contaminating the rest of the picture with irrational feeling.
