Nitrous Oxide Now Available at MFS and FCC

Category: Male Fertility Specialists (MFS) | Posted on May 12, 2020

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.
