What is PRO-NOX?
PRO-NOX is a nitrous oxide delivery system for pain management. PRO-NOX uses a 50/50 combination of oxygen and nitrous oxide that is inhaled to provide fast-acting pain relief that increases comfort and aids in calming anxiety. PRO-NOX is not general anesthesia and will not put you to sleep. It can work in conjunction with local anesthetic to minimize pain or discomfort and lower stress.
How Does PRO-NOX Work?
Nitrous oxide, commonly known as “laughing gas,” is well-established as a fast-acting mild sedative. While nitrous oxide has been used in medical settings for many years, PRO-NOX is innovative in its delivery approach. PRO-NOX has a self-administered system that empowers you to control your own comfort level. It also features the latest and advanced delivery systems and safety mechanisms.
Benefits of PRO-NOX:
- Patient controlled
- No needles
- Leaves the system quickly so you can resume your routine
- Patients are able to drive themselves home soon after treatment (with the exception of surgeries)
How Much Does PRO-NOX Cost?
The PRO-NOX system involves the use of disposable / single use tubing that is new for each patient. It involves the use of oxygen and nitrous oxide and an expensive pneumatically controlled delivery system. Office sedation is not paid for by insurance or Medicare.
