Laughing Gas Has Arrived At OVD
Nitrous Oxide, known as ‘Laughing Gas’ is a great, short term relief for nervous patients.
Did You Know?
How Does it Work?
One of the most immediate effects of the gas is the easing of pain which generally has effect within the first 4 to 5 inhalation. After a few minutes, a warm euphoric feeling will spread through the body, similar to a ‘happy drunk’ feeling. This is generally associated with light-headedness and a healthy case of the giggles, hence the name
Why We Reccomend it!
The gas reaches your brain in 20 seconds, with the relaxation and pain-killing effects developing after 2 to 3 minutes.
Depth of Sedation is Buildable
Unlike other sedation techniques the person administering the gas can increase and decrease the level of sedation with almost instant effect.
There is No ‘Hangover’ Effect
The gas is eliminated from the body within 3-5 minutes after the gas has been turned off, leaving you safe to drive home after your treatment.
No Injection Required
The gas is administered through a nasal mask and then inhaled, therefore no injection required! This is a great option for patients that suffer from needle phobias as can allow them to relax before a needle if local anaesthetic is required.
It’s Very Safe!
There are very few side effects of laughing gas, and has no harsh effects on your major organs.
Helps with Severe Gagging
Inhalation sedation has been found to be very effective in eliminating, at the least minimizing severe gagging.
