Nitrous Oxide for Kids

Each year, hundreds of thousands of children go to the emergency room with broken bones. The painful procedure to set those bones before they’re put in a cast can be excruciating.// Now emergency room physicians can set fractures with only a fraction of the pain.

When a child does need to have a shot, nitrous oxide can be given to reduce the pain and anxiety before the shot is administered. .
