"Laughing gas" used as an alternative cheap anesthesia

A new study revealed that nitrous oxide, known as 'laughing gas', declared safe for use as an anesthetic drug after a debate in the medical world for many years. Nitrous oxide was first used as an anesthetic drug for patients operated on, about 160 years ago.

Although medical experts believe nitrous oxide has been used billions of times since discovered, however, concerns about the side effects of this gas makes the surgeons are looking for a new type of anesthetic drugs that are more expensive.

Now, the results of the study Professor Paul Myles of the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne may change these assumptions. After 6 years of research, Paul claimed nitrous oxide is safe to use. "We are very serious about these findings, and the gas is not without side effects. However, our results are very convincing, "he said.

This study tested the side effects of nitrous oxide on 7000 patients in 45 hospitals in Australia, Asia, North America and Europe. "Now we can convince anesthetists all over the world, and perhaps also patients who will undergo surgery, that gas is safe and effective to use," he added.

Professor Paul present their research findings at a conference in Singapore. He earnestly tried to convince the medical personnel in hospitals and patients that the drug is also cheap and safe.. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ABC NEWS]
