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
- wound dressing changes
- suturing of lacerations
- burns dressing
- 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.
