Bone marrow biopsy is a painful medical procedure often performed with local anesthetic. Therefore a double-blind, randomized, controlled trial was carried out in 330 adult patients who w...
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...
The use of analgesics can lead to cases of drug abuse and dependence. It can also cause pseudo-addiction in patients suffering from pain. What is the actual situation in patients suffering...
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...
Lumbar puncture (LP) is a frequent exam that can cause pain and anxiety. In a pilot single-center study, it has been shown that nitrous oxide use during the procedure was able to reduce bo...
The objective of this scoping review is to locate and summarize the current criteria used in the diagnosis of adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder in recent academic literature. Furthermore, we aim to ...
Inhaled nitrous oxide (N2O) has been used worldwide for over 100 years as labor analgesia but has not gained widespread use in the United States. Nitrous oxide provides a noninvasive option for labori...
Protocol for a double blind, randomised placebo-controlled trial using ondansetron to reduce vomiting in children receiving intranasal fentanyl and inhaled nitrous oxide for procedural sedation in the emergency department (the FON trial).
Intranasal fentanyl and nitrous oxide (NO) can be combined to create a non-parenteral procedural sedation regimen for children in the paediatric emergency department. This combination of intranasal fe...
Transrectal ultrasound-guided biopsy (TUSPB) is the standard method of diagnosis for prostate cancer, and although it is well tolerated by some patients, it presents a discomfort rate of 65 to 90%, wh...
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)
