Medical Nitrous Oxide and Oxygen Mixture

DONAPA is a ready-to-use medical gas mixture consisting of 50% nitrous oxide and 50% oxygen for use in all situations where analgesia and sedation with rapid onset and offset is sought.

Nitrous oxide/oxygen mixture provides the pain relieving properties of nitrous oxide with the benefits of additional oxygen without producing unconsciousness. It is a widely used analgesic for acute, short-term pain relief in a diverse range of clinical situations, from painful procedures to childbirth
DONAPA is ideal for the treatment of acute pain in accident and emergency departments. It also offers a safe and effective alternative to the commonly used analgesic agents (e.g. morphine, Oramorph, Pethidine and NSAID) in the control of pain due to short procedures. For example:

  • fracture manipulation
  • dermatological procedures
  • endoscopy
  • wound dressing changes
  • suturing of lacerations
  • burns dressing
  • venepuncture
  • Labour
  • vascular procedures
  • patient mobilisation
  • radiological procedures
  • wound drain removal.

The EMONO device is designed and created to withdraw a patient’s exhalation with gas mixtures containing 50% of nitrous oxide and 50% oxygen and expel it outdoors away from windows and doors to other rooms, ventilation systems, and places in order to prevent the build-up of nitrous oxide in the environment therefore minimizing exposure of workers to it.
