What is Medical Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous Oxide is a non-flammable, colourless oxidising gas with a slightly sweetish taste and odour. Nitrous Oxide is widely used as a base anaesthetic generally supplemented by other agents. It is used extensively for relative analgesia and as a freezing agent in cryosurgery.

Nitrous oxide earned the nickname ‘laughing gas’ for its ability to help calm patients and control their pain during certain medical procedures.

Nitrous oxide gas is the sedation of choice in most dental practices for its easy application and success in controlling pain and anxiety in patients of all ages. It also improves the quality and safety of anaesthesia induction and facilitates a faster recovery for patients. It is a cost-effective pain management choice for aged care facilities, dental clinics, medical centres, and veterinary practices.

What are the Uses and Applications for Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide, sometimes referred to as ‘laughing gas’, and uses and applications include:

  • Sedation or Anesthesia/Analgesia
  • Freezing agent in cryosurgery
  • Safety Precautions when using Nitrous Oxide
  • Improves the quality and safety of anaesthesia induction
  • Facilitates a faster recovery for the patient
  • Reduces anaesthesia costs for aged care facilities, dental clinics, medical centres, and veterinary clinics

What are the safety precautions to follow after using Nitrous Oxide?

Do not drive a vehicle or operate machinery for at least 24 hours after using Medical Nitrous Oxide. General anaesthetics may cause a slight decrease in intellectual function and alertness for 2 to 3 days in some people.

Why is Nitrous Oxide commonly used for anaesthesia?

Nitrous oxide is preferred by anaesthesiologists because of the way this medical gas interacts with the human (and animal) brain and spinal cord. Nitrous oxide goes directly to the pain centres of the brain and spinal cord, making it an excellent choice for pain management and sedation during surgical and other medical procedures. It is quick-acting and long-lasting, ensuring patients are comfortable during procedures that require sedation
