To evaluate the nitrous oxide- oxygen inhalation sedation during inferior alveolar block administration in children.
Materials & Methods: A total of 50 children of age 7-10 years, with a treatment plan of extraction of primary teeth were enrolled in the study. They were divided into 2 groups as N2O-O2 and oxygen. Those who presented with clinical conditions contraindicating the use of N2O–O2 or having known allergy to lignocaine were excluded from the study. Data was collected and result was analysed using SPSS software. The level of significance was at p≤0.05.
Results: A total of 50 children were enrolled, 25 in each group. There was a significantly lower pain reaction to local anesthetic administration in the N2O-O 2 group (p<0.01). Scoring was done. In O2 administrated patients, 84% were in deep sedation during and even after the procedure. In N2O-O2, 32% patients were in light sedation after the procedure whereas 20% were in light sedation during the procedure.
Conclusion: N2O-O2 inhalation showed better results as vital signs were normal and treatment completed successfully.
