Nitrous Oxide for the Treatment of Chronic Low Back Pain. 1350-9 10.1213/ANE.0000000000000951 Neuropathic back pain is mediated, at least partially, by N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors. Nitrous oxide (N2O) is an NMDA receptor antagonist. We therefore tested the primary hypothesis that patients receiving N2O have lower pain (...) with pain treatment, or use of opioid overtime. Overall, no significant differences on any cytokine were found between the 2 groups. The estimated odds ratios of taking opioid was 0.46 (0.12, 1.84) (N2O versus O2; P = 0.12). N2O administration did not improve pain or psychological or physical aspects of health-related quality of life. N2O does not appear to be an effective treatment for chronic neuropathic back pain.
