What is Pro-Nox?
Pro-Nox is a pain management system, that is self-administered by the patient. The system combines a safe mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen, and allows the patient to be in full control of their usage, throughout the duration of their procedure.
How does Pro-Nox work?
Patients inhale the mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen, prior to the beginning of their procedure. The oxygen will allow the patient to breathe normally, while the nitrous oxide works to dull the pain receptors of the brain, and produce feelings of relaxation. If the patient begins to feel any discomfort, they will let their surgeon know, and will inhale the mixture again. This process will continue until the procedure is completed.
What can i expect with Pro-Nox recovery?
The recovery process from the Pro-Nox system, is extremely easy on the patient. Unlike other forms of pain relief, that require precautions and limitations after their use, Pro-Nox clears from the patient’s system within several minutes. At this point, the patient is free to leave the office, and it is completely safe for them to drive a vehicle.
