Medical Nitrous Oxide

Medical use, for therapeutic treatment in humans and animals

N2O

Medical Nitrous Oxide is indicated in general anaesthesia: when an inhalation anaesthetic is required, the administration is usually accompanied by simultaneous administration of a volatile agent such as halothane, ethrane, etc. When combined with oxygen, nitrous oxide is a reliable analgesic for relief from severe pain, usually in emergency situations, by inhalation with oxygen. Useful also in short-term procedures which inevitably involve pain, such as wound and burn dressing, wound debridement and suturing. Administration with oxygen. In dental work to provide short-term analgesia for tooth extraction and other brief procedures. Administration with oxygen. In cryosurgery as a refrigerant
