Entonox has been used widely in the treatment of pain during minor interventions, investigations or surgical procedures, particularly where fast onset and offset of analgesia is desired.
The analgesic properties of Entonox, supplied by Afrox Healthcare, plays an important role in helping patients overcome the apprehension associated with pain. It is fast acting and rapidly eliminated from the body once inhalation stops. The effects are predictable and reliable, with no loss of consciousness and minimal side effects.
Entonox is administered by inhalation, so there is no need to insert a cannula or set up an intravenous line. This means that this form of analgesia does not need to be administered by specialist anaesthetist, but can be administered by trained healthcare staff such as paramedics, nurses and midwives.
