Nitrous Oxide Now Available at MFS and FCC

Posted on May 12, 2020 in Male Fertility Specialists (MFS)

Dr. Bastuba is pleased to announce that, starting later in May, Male Fertility & Sexual Medicine Specialists (MFS) and Fertility Center of California (FCC) will be introducing the use of nitrous oxide to both practices with the Pro-Nox system, an analgesic delivery device manufactured by CareStream America.

The Pro-Nox system provides a 50/50 mix of Oxygen and Nitrous Oxide and will be offered to MFS and FCC patients undergoing in-office procedural care. The system rapidly deploys the analgesic to help ease a patient's pain and anxiety. The combination of 50% N2O and 50% O2 is an effective analgesic that provides quick pain relief and recovery while also giving the patient a sense of control.

The system guarantees a 50/50 delivery of the gases, making it extremely safe. The patient holds a small mouthpiece and, when they inhale, the combined gases fill their lungs. When they exhale, the gas stops flowing and a secondary tube takes the gas away.

Dr. Bastuba has chosen this system for a variety of reasons, including:

  • It is safe and effective. In fact, it has been used by hospitals and medical practices for decades.
  • The analgesic is patient-administered, which empowers patients to respond to their pain and anxiety when they need to
  • It has a quick onset – the analgesic takes effect in seconds
  • The duration of the effect is short – the analgesic clears from the body within minutes, allowing the patient to drive home shortly after the case.
  • It helps to relieve pain and control anxiety.

For a limited time, we are having an introductory price of $99 per case. Afterward, patients will be charged $129 per case.
