Dentists failing to observe nitrous oxide safety recommendations

Nitrous oxide is vital in teeth procedures, but sometimes, not all safety measures are put in place. For example, in a hurry, a dentist might forget to check the equipment for leaks.

Key takeaways:

– Severe exposure to nitrous oxide may cause lightheadedness, coughs, eye irritation and reduced fertility.

– Safe practices include using patient nasal scavenging mask, periodic monitoring of the air and adequate room ventilation.

– Anesthesia machines should be restricted from delivering more than 70% nitrous oxide, to protect patients from hypoxia.

Ensure that your dentist is keen on safety.
