Abstract

Summary Nowadays, nitrous oxide is a highly used anaesthetic agent. Although it has been used in general anaesthesia for more than 150 years, the potential adverse effects (postoperative nausea and vomiting, vitamin B12 metabolism interaction and the limitation of inspired oxygen concentration) ensure that its continued use in modern anaesthesia is questioned. The objective of this study is to review the arguments for and against the use of nitrous oxide.
