WHAT IS INHALATION SEDATION?
Known as nitrous oxide or “laughing gas,” you’ll experience a feeling of euphoria after just 2-3 minutes of breathing in the gas. You’ll be aware of your surroundings and be able to respond to questions. Inhalation sedation has very few side effects (may cause nausea if too large a dose is given) and is 100% eliminated from the body within 3 to 5 minutes after the gas supply is discontinued. You do not need an escort when using this form of sedation.
