Empower Your Patients with Nitrous Oxide
The Nitronox™ systems allow for a safe and proven method for patients to control their own pain relief. Decades of clinical research and successful practice have shown that the inhalation of 50% nitrous oxide and 50% oxygen provides fast, effective analgesia and pain relief in a variety of medical settings including obstetrics, EMS, and in-office applications.

The preset 50/50 mix of nitrous oxide and oxygen enables patients to self-administer through a specially designed demand valve for pain management. There is no chance of over-sedation when having the patient self-administer - as the mask will drop away and the patient will begin to breathe room air. The patient remains alert, conscious and able to follow instructions. In addition, the inhaled analgesic takes effect quickly and has few side effects.
