I am currently a second year fellow and I am looking into trying nitrous oxide in our pediatric emergency department along with another fellow. We are currently using ketamine and etomidate to sedate children for procedures such as incision and drainiage of abcesses and complicated lacerations. At this point, we don't have access to nitrous. I wanted to see if anyone is using it and the results you are having. I also wanted to see if anyone had any ideas on a good way to obtain a machine so that we can learn how to use it and see how it works for us here. I have heard conflicting opinions and wanted to get some more input before we relly start to pursue this. Thanks and I appreciate any input.
