Nitrous Oxide (N2O)

Nitrous oxide is a very common inhalational anesthetic that offers analgesia, anxiolysis, and sometimes amnesia. It’s a colorless, non-flammable gas with a slightly sweet taste. Due to its euphoric and hysterical effects, the substance is also called “laughing gas.” It’s been a recreational drug since the late 1700s and is currently one of the most common inhalants. N2O is also used in the food and automobile industries, such as in whipped cream canisters and as an engine booster.

When inhaled, the gas slows down the body’s reaction time. This results in a calm, euphoric feeling. Nitrous oxide can be used to treat pain. It also functions as a mild sedative. Because of this, it’s sometimes used before dental procedures to promote relaxation and reduce anxiety. Nitrous oxide gas works fast as a sedative, but it doesn’t take long for the effects to wear off. Nitrous oxide is safe. But like any type of drug, side effects may occur.

The best-known uses of nitrous oxide are as a medical anesthetic and analgesic.

An anesthetic causes a patient to lose touch with all sensation of pain — and often lose consciousness — while an analgesic simply lessens the severity of the pain. Nitrous oxide typically offers stable respiration and circulation, is easily breathed, provides some pain relief. Usually there’s little effect on cardiovascular activity.

In the food industry, nitrous oxide is a highly effective propellant for dispensing fatty liquids like oil and heavy cream. To dispense whipped cream, nitrous oxide is compressed into a liquid and mixed with heavy cream inside sealed, pressurized canisters. Because the liquid nitrous oxide displaces all oxygen in the can, an unopened canister of whipped cream will never go rancid. Nitrous oxide is highly soluble in fat, and when pressure inside the canister is released, the liquid nitrous instantly turns to gas, expanding the volume of the cream four-fold
