High impact information on Inert Gas Narcosis

  • The objectives were to determine the effects of either slow or rapid rates of compression, and either 5% or 10% (by volume) nitrogen in Heliox, on the presence of h.p.n.s. or nitrogen narcosis [4].
  • Inert gas narcosis induces a decrease of the dopamine release at the striatum level, structure involved in the regulation of the extrapyramidal motricity [5].
  • Nitrous oxide (N2O) effects were evaluated, as a behavioural model of inert gas narcosis, in rats performing a vigilance task in which they were required to respond to a slight luminous increment of the house-light [6].
  • EEG patterns associated with nitrogen narcosis (breathing air at 9 ATA) [7].
  • Nitrogen narcosis and ethyl alcohol increase the gain of the vestibular ocular reflex [8].
