The Pro-Nox™ Nitrous Oxide Delivery System empowers you to safely control your pain relief during any medical procedure. The fixed mixture of 50% Nitrous Oxide (N2O) and 50% Oxygen (O2) uses a specially designed on-demand valve that only delivers the medical gases when you inhale. You manage when to use it and for how long while still being able to recognize and respond on your own terms.
Quick Effect and Recovery
The effects are typically felt within just a few breaths through a mouthpiece or mask offering immediate relief of pain and anxiety. No needles or pills. When the pain subsides, take a couple breaths without the mouthpiece or mask and the N2O is expelled from your body within a few minutes, so you can drive yourself home.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does Pro-Nox™ work?
The equipment is calibrated to ensure a perfect 50/50 blend delivered with each breath. Inhale while holding your own mouthpiece or mask. Keep the

No, breathe from the system as you need it for relief or as directed by your provider.
Are there any special preparations to use the Pro-Nox™?

Can I drive myself home after the procedure?
Yes, unless directed otherwise by your provider. The N2O effects subside in a few minutes of breathing without the mouthpiece or mask.
