It works by entering the blood by diffusion from the alveoli while it is being inhale, but it doesn’t mix with the haemoglobin. Then, it moves quickly into the cells including synapse ends in the brain. Because of nitrous oxide’s stability, it is not metabolized. Once the inhalation is cut off, it is eliminated by diffusion out of the lungs.

In the case of medical care, nitrous oxygen mixed with oxygen prevents pain. Some side effects include mild hysteria, slower heart rate, and lack of oxygen which can cause death, and, if used regularly, it can also cause neurotoxic damage. One of the advantages to using nitrous oxide is no one is allergic to it.

When nitrous oxide is used in cars and rockets, it vaporizes, causing a significant cooling effect on the intake air. You increase the density of the air when the intake air pressure is reduced. This provides even more oxygen in the cylinder which is a good thing.
