We have it and for the most part it is not used.
Results weren't terribly impressive. Was labor intensive and the results did
warrant the effort.

Subject: Re: Nitrous Oxide Analgesia
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.
