More About Pro-Nox
The Pro-Nox system is based on a long history of success using nitrous oxide as a calming agent and analgesic. Nitrous oxide has been safely used for more than a century in dermatologic, surgical, and dental settings. Historically, clinical staff has been in control of dosing and administration of this mild sedative. What Pro-Nox does is give you control. This is made possible by internal safety mechanisms such as infection control via a one-way delivery valve and automatic shut-off if either nitrous oxide or oxygen levels in the machine become too low.
Nitrous oxide is one of the oldest and safest forms of sedation to be used in clinical settings. In comparison to oral and IV sedatives, the advantage of nitrous oxide is that the calming effects occur rapidly and dissipate within about 5 minutes after the completion of treatment. Due to this fast-action, patients need not arrive for appointments early nor are they required to arrange transportation to and from their appointments. Once the effects of nitrous oxide wear off, normal activities can be resumed. In cases where the specific procedure would not preclude driving, patients using Pro-Nox can drive home after their treatment.
