Medical Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous oxide has been used in medicine for over a century due to its analgesic (pain-relieving) and anxiolytic (anxiety-reducing) properties.
In medical settings, healthcare providers commonly utilize nitrous oxide as a mild sedative and analgesic during dental procedures, childbirth (administered via a mask as nitrous oxide-oxygen mixtures, or “laughing gas”), and minor surgeries.
DSW is a significant supplier of industrial gases, specialty gases, and related equipment, including nitrous oxide for medical applications.
Features and Characteristics:
Nitrous oxide gas (N2O) is a colorless, odorless gas composed of two nitrogen atoms bonded to one oxygen atom. Its key feature is purity, with medical-grade nitrous oxide typically exceeding 99% purity. This high level of purity ensures its safety and effectiveness in medical applications.
Medical NOS tanks, designed for portability, are also accessible for use in ambulatory settings or during patient transport. These systems usually feature small medical nitrous tanks equipped with regulators and delivery devices. They empower healthcare providers to administer nitrous oxide to patients outside traditional healthcare facilities, including in dental offices or ambulances.

Cylinder or Tank: Nitrous oxide is often supplied in compressed gas cylinders or tanks. These cylinders are typically made of high-strength materials such as steel or aluminium and are equipped with valves and pressure regulators to control gas flow. Healthcare providers can connect these cylinders to delivery systems such as anaesthesia machines or dental units to administer nitrous oxide to patients.
Reduces patient anxiety
Slightly increases pain tolerance
Reduces gagging reflexes
Reduces reaction/patient movement during precise procedures
Allows patients to tolerate longer procedures
Patients are conscious and aware during the procedure and can communicate normally with medical staff.
Nitrous oxide has been shown to be safely used in the medical world to reduce pain and calm patients.
