  • Date: Sat, 4 Sep 1993 03:22:39 GMT Hello everybody, I promised to send out this list I have, with well known people, using n2o (nitrous oxide) as a drug. (erowid.org)
  • gases
  • For a more complete idea of how a country influences climate change, gases such as methane and nitrous oxide should be taken into account. (indexmundi.com)
  • Converting all other greenhouse gases (methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs), Sulphur hexafluoride (SF6)) to carbon dioxide (or CO2) equivalents makes it possible to compare them and to determine their individual and total contributions to global warming. (indexmundi.com)
  • rodents
  • I would suggest that the following types of people in particular avoid exposure to signficant amounts of nitrous: Pregnant women: since nitrous oxide is a known teratogen in rodents, acting by depleting folates and partially reversible by oral folinic acid, we can expect a similar syndrome in humans. (erowid.org)
  • anaesthetic
  • Nitrous Oxide is an anaesthetic gas best known for its use in dentistry and as a whipped cream propellant. (erowid.org)
  • The operating rooms were found to be improperly ventilated, causing nitrous oxide and halothane (another anaesthetic) to remain in the air. (erowid.org)
  • Nitrous oxide is used for induction and maintenance of anaesthesia and, in sub-anaesthetic concentrations, for analgesia in a variety of situations. (inchem.org)
  • Nitrous oxide has significant medical uses, especially in surgery and dentistry, for its anaesthetic and pain reducing effects. (wikipedia.org)
  • widely
  • When equipment became more widely available for dentistry and hospitals, most countries also restricted the legal access to buy pure nitrous oxide gas cylinders to those sectors. (wikipedia.org)
  • At a recent rock festival nitrous oxide was widely sold for 25 cents a balloon. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, amyl nitrite (poppers), nitrous oxide and toluene - a solvent widely used in contact cement and model airplane glue - are considered inhalants, but smoking tobacco, cannabis, and crack are not, even though these drugs are inhaled (as smoke). (wikipedia.org)
  • Several medical anesthetics are used as recreational drugs, including diethyl ether (a drug that is no longer used medically, due to its high flammability and the development of safer alternatives) and nitrous oxide, which is widely used in the 2010s by dentists as an anti-anxiety drug during dental procedures. (wikipedia.org)
  • gasoline
  • In a 1914 patent, American rocket pioneer Robert Goddard suggested nitrous oxide and gasoline as possible propellants for a liquid-fuelled rocket. (wikipedia.org)
  • Nitrous injection systems may be "dry", where the nitrox oxide is injected separately from gasoline, or "wet" in which additional gasoline is carried into the engine along with the nitrous. (wikipedia.org)
  • They are inhaled at room temperature through volatilization (in the case of gasoline or acetone) or from a pressurized container (e.g., nitrous oxide or butane), and do not include drugs that are sniffed after burning or heating. (wikipedia.org)
  • injection
  • Racers dabbled with nitrous oxide injection from time to time with varied results. (holley.com)
  • Sometimes nitrous oxide is injected into (or prior to) the intake manifold, whereas other systems directly inject, right before the cylinder (direct port injection) to increase power. (wikipedia.org)
  • Reliable operation of an engine with nitrous injection requires careful attention to the strength of engine components and to the accuracy of the mixing systems, otherwise destructive detonations may occur. (wikipedia.org)
  • Nitrous oxide injection systems were applied as early as World War II for certain aircraft engines. (wikipedia.org)
  • The term NOS is derived from the initials of the company name Nitrous Oxide Systems, one of the pioneering companies in the development of nitrous oxide injection systems for automotive performance use. (wikipedia.org)
  • propulsion
  • The Nitrous Oxide Ethane-Ethylene (NEE) engine is a proposed technology designed to provide spacecraft with non-toxic non-cryogenic high-performance propulsion. (sbir.gov)
  • The complexities involved in building propulsion systems that can safely handle nitrous oxide fuel blend monopropellants have been a deterrent to serious development. (wikipedia.org)
  • intake manifold
  • There are four main sub types of wet system: single point, direct port, plate, and plenum bar all of which are just slightly different methods of discharging nitrous into the plenums of the intake manifold. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pregnant
  • I don't have a reference handy for the reproductive disturbances, but the study basically found that women who were chronically exposed to nitrous had difficulty becoming pregnant. (erowid.org)
  • Pregnant women should not use nitrous oxide recreationally, because chronic use is also teratogenic and foetotoxic. (wikipedia.org)
  • amounts
  • Nitrous oxide occurs in small amounts in the atmosphere, but recently has been found to be a major scavenger of stratospheric ozone, with an impact comparable to that of CFCs. (wikipedia.org)
  • propellants
  • Nitrous Oxide Fuel Blend propellants are a class of liquid rocket propellants intended to replace hydrazine as the standard rocket fuel. (wikipedia.org)
  • While a small number of inhalants are prescribed by medical professionals and used for medical purposes, as in the case of nitrous oxide (an anxiolytic and pain relief agent prescribed by dentists), this article focuses on inhalant use of household and industrial propellants, glues, fuels and other products in a manner not intended by the manufacturer, to produce intoxication or other psychoactive effects. (wikipedia.org)
  • Systems
  • The company Nitrous Oxide Systems (NOS) was born. (holley.com)
  • Nitrous oxide systems may not be permitted for street or highway use, depending on local regulations. (wikipedia.org)
  • Progressive systems have the advantage of utilizing a larger amount of nitrous (and fuel) to produce even greater power increases as the additional power and torque are gradually introduced (as opposed to being applied to the engine and transmission immediately), reducing the risk of mechanical stress and, consequently, damage. (wikipedia.org)
  • There are two main categories of nitrous systems: dry & wet. (wikipedia.org)
  • The promise of high performance, greater range and lighter feed systems drove experimentation with blends of nitrous oxide and ammonia, which resulted in numerous explosions and demolished motors. (wikipedia.org)
  • engine
  • One of the major problems of using nitrous oxide in a reciprocating engine is that it can produce enough power to damage or destroy the engine. (wikipedia.org)
  • temporary
  • If nitrous oxide kits (which produce a temporary horsepower gain) are outlawed, how long will it be before we see the same kind of bans on turbos, blowers, intakes, exhausts and ECU upgrades? (ridelust.com)
  • Since nitrous oxide can cause dizziness, dissociation, and temporary loss of motor control, it is unsafe to inhale while standing up. (wikipedia.org)
  • balloons
  • Nitrous oxide's popularity in Korea is a recent trend, particularly among college students who inhale it from balloons ― people call them "happy balloons" ― with beers at parties. (koreatimes.co.kr)
  • Nitrous oxide is packaged and sold in balloons for about $5 at a rave, a wild teen utopia where drugs and inhalants often swirl freely among the jeans and crop tops. (sun-sentinel.com)
  • liquid
  • This brings liquid nitrous oxide all the way up through the plumbing from the storage tank to the solenoid valve or valves that will release it into the engine's intake tract. (wikipedia.org)
  • engines
  • Cars with nitrous-equipped engines can be identified by the "purge" of the delivery system that most drivers perform prior to reaching the starting line. (wikipedia.org)
