Adverse Event Risk Assessment in the Use of Nitrous Oxide for Pediatric Dental Patients

2016-09-21 20:23:22 | BioPortfolio


The objective was to assess adverse event risk in the use of Nitrous Oxide for Pediatric Dental Patients. The investigators performed a multicenter observational study. The investigators included patients aged 1 to 18 years and who have already failed dental care because of non-cooperation; they could be with mental or cognitive disabilities and could have sedative premedication. The investigators performed any type of dental care With the Use of Nitrous Oxide/Oxygen Sedation. The primary outcome was vomiting assessed during or after dental care.

Nitrous Oxide Versus Intravenous Sedation for Anesthesia

This study is a multi-site, double-blinded, randomized, non-inferiority clinical trial of inhaled nitrous oxide with oxygen (N2O/O2) versus intravenous (IV) sedation, with fentanyl and mid...

High-Concentration Nitrous Oxide for Dental Procedural Sedation in Children

The use of nitrous oxide as a sedative agent is very common in pediatric dentistry. In concentrations up to 50% it is considered as mild sedation and it is very safe. Despite its safety an...

The Effect of N2O Administration on Arterial Oxygenation

Nitrous oxide is a standard part of most anaesthetic breathing mixtures. It has often been assumed that it reduces the amount of oxygen reaching the lower parts of the lung. However the re...

Nitrous Oxide for Analgesia During Colonoscopy

The purpose of the study is to determine the analgetic effect of nitrous oxide during colonoscopy, compared to no sedation and intravenous (IV) sedation.

Use of 50% Nitrous Oxide / 50% Oxygen Premix During Liver Biopsy of Focal Lesion

A 50% nitrous oxide / 50% oxygen premix is administrated to the patient during the realization of liver biopsy in order to relax him and to reduce his pain during this painful medical trea...

Measurement of rare isotopologues of nitrous oxide by high-resolution multi-collector mass spectrometry.

Bulk and position-specific stable isotope characterization of nitrous oxide represents one of the most powerful tools for identifying its environmental sources and sinks. Constraining (14) N(15) N(18)...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Nitrogen oxide (N2O). A colorless, odorless gas that is used as an anesthetic and analgesic. High concentrations cause a narcotic effect and may replace oxygen, causing death by asphyxia. It is also used as a food aerosol in the preparation of whipping cream.

An NADPH-dependent enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of L-ARGININE and OXYGEN to produce CITRULLINE and NITRIC OXIDE.

A neuropathy due to VITAMIN B 12 DEFICIENCY or to excessive NITROUS OXIDE inhalation. It is associated with overproduction of the myelinolytic TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR-ALPHA.

A nonflammable, halogenated, hydrocarbon anesthetic that provides relatively rapid induction with little or no excitement. Analgesia may not be adequate. NITROUS OXIDE is often given concomitantly. Because halothane may not produce sufficient muscle relaxation, supplemental neuromuscular blocking agents may be required. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p178)

Nitrous acid (HNO2). A weak acid that exists only in solution. It can form water-soluble nitrites and stable esters. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
