A dental flowmeter is a device that allows dentists and other healthcare professionals to safely administer Nitrous Oxide to a patient during procedures. The mobile dental flowmeters manufactured by Accutron Inc, Belmed, Inc. and Porter are increasingly becoming more popular within family, and oral surgical dental facilities around the country. Dental flowmeter units require routine maintenance to support reliable and safe administration to the patients, without compromising employee health.
Dental workers are at risk of being exposed to Nitrous Oxide during the administration of this anesthetic gas to patients. Exposures should be minimized to prevent short-term behavioral and long-term reproductive health effects that can be produced by nitrous oxide. Leaks and user error, are among two of the most common causes for employee and patient risk when administering nitrous through a dental anesthesia flowmeter.
