Nitrous Oxide Making a Comeback in Delivery Rooms

A short post today because you can read the full article at, but basically nitrous is making a comeback for women in labor.

Nitrous has fallen out of popularity in the US and has been more or less replaced by epidurals which require an anesthesiologist and are more expensive.  Some are now feeling that nitrous might make a nice alternative.

As a dentist, I don't pretend to know anything about labor & de livery, but I thought this was an interesting read, nonetheless.
