Nitrous oxide, also called laughing gas, is a colorless, slightly sweet gas that is used during medical treatment for relaxation and anxiety relief. When inhaled, it can induce feelings of euphoria. It also can produce sensations of drowsiness, warmth, and tingling in the hands, feet and/or about the mouth. In a medical setting, it will not induce unconsciousness. You will be able to swallow, talk and cough as needed. For most patients they will feel the effects of nitrous oxide within a minute or two. As with any medication, the effects may vary from patient to patient. For some it will work great and others it may either not be enough or they will not like how it is making them feel. Once the patient stops inhaling the gas mixture it will be completely out of their system within 5-10 minutes. They will start feeling back to normal almost immediately. Nitrous oxide and oxygen have been used for over 100 years and have a long-standing safety record.
