Read a lot about N20 used in the pre-hospital setting, but I've been surprised about not a single mention of contraindications like pneumothorax or bowel obstruction, pts with vitreoretinal surgical histories...stuff like that...was it there and I just missed it?
It’s usually mentioned (in the protocols I have read and textbook references). A lot of the use cases cite isolated extremity and soft tissue trauma. For example, see VT protocols
