Midwife Nitrous Oxide Informed Consent Mobile App
The Midwife Nitrous Oxide Informed Consent mobile app makes it easy for patients to give their consent when using the gas for conscious sedation during labor pain.
How does it work?
Easily accessible from a smartphone or tablet, midwives and nurses can use the app instead of printing out hard copies of nitrous oxide consent forms.
Instead of utilizing deep sedation drugs to reduce labor pain, nitrous oxide can help reduce the pain while still allowing the patient to stay awake. This form of conscious sedation is considered safer than other types of drugs and can help mothers stay calmer during the birthing process. The basic consent agreement covers the risks associated with nitrous oxide and allows both the mother and midwife or nurse to sign off on the results electronically.
