Something To Laugh About
Nitrouseal is a safe and effective analgesia solution

What is Nitrouseal?
Nitrouseal® is a proprietary nitrous delivery system developed by a Board-Certified Anesthesiologist specifically for administering nitrous sedation in any medical setting without exposing medical personnel to the exhaled nitrous. This is accomplished by utilizing a patented disposable facemask and breathing circuit (tubing) to administer the inhaled nitrous/oxygen mixture in combination with an FDA-cleared pump then capture and eliminate the exhaled nitrous from the treatment area.
The Nitrouseal® System has become the accepted standard for delivering nitrous sedation in most pediatric hospitals and many medical offices nationwide.
