Nitrous Oxide Frequency of Use and Causes in Hospital in Turkey

Summary

The prevalence of nitrous oxide use in hospitals in Turkey

Description

Nitrous oxide has a long history of use in the healthcare field for over 150 years. However, this gas is slowly being abandoned for various reasons. The decrease in N2O use is probably due to its side effects and negative impact on global warming. Proven side effects include irreversible toxic effects on bone marrow, relative or absolute contraindications related to neuro and cardiac anesthesia, increased incidence of post-operative nausea and vomiting, increased risk of miscarriage in pregnant women (5), the greenhouse effect of nitrous oxide. In 2013, B. Husum et al. investigated the frequency of N2O use in public hospitals in Scandinavian countries and it was confirmed that N2O use was reduced and limited. According to the results of this research, N2O was administered with a volatile anesthetic agent in 21.5% of general anesthesia applications in Scandinavian countries. N2O was used as the second agent in Denmark by 2.4%, Finland by 17%, Iceland by 34.5, Norway by 32.1%, Sweden by 27.5%. In Turkey there are not enough reports of N2O use prevalence. In this study, we will investigate the extent of use and avoidance reasons N2O in Turkey. And we aim creating awareness.

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.

The study of ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION and the toxic effects of ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTANTS on the ECOSYSTEM. The term was coined by Truhaut in 1969.

A factor associated with the well-being of living organisms that is used as a measure of environmental change and or influence. For example, aldehyde dehydrogenase expression in earthworm tissue is used as an indication of heavy metal pollution in soils. Distinguish from BIOMARKERS.

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.

Contamination of the air, bodies of water, or land with substances that are harmful to human health and the environment.
