It is known that labor can be extremely difficult for some women. The pain felt during those crucial moments is unbearable, and many women suffer a lot while delivering babies. To address this issue, the state-run King Koti district hospital has begun using Entonox (a gas that is a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen) during the process of delivering babies.


The pregnant women suffering from severe labor pain will now have some relief, says the head of the gynecology department at the District Hospital, King Koti, Dr. Jalaja Veronica. She adds that it is first-of-its-kind equipment to be used in a government hospital.


According to her, women can have some relief by breathing in a mixture of oxygen and laughing gas. Every contraction involves breathing in the gas, and depending on the patient’s pain threshold; the gases begin to work on the sensory nerves within 15-20 seconds and provide pain relief for one to two minutes. Instead of functioning as an anesthetic, it acts as an analgesic, she explains.


At the time of labor, when the woman cannot bear the pain, an oxygen mask is given to her, which is connected to a cylinder of Entonox. When the patient exhales deeply, the gas goes into her body and helps her to reduce the pain.


So far, it has been used on 13 women, and the government intends to use the formula in all government hospitals.
