Exposure to nitrous-oxide (10024972) in dental operations was monitored using a miran infrared analyzer, a "typical" time-weighted average exposure was established for the surgeon, assistant and anesthesiologist. Exposures as high as 24,000 ppm were recorded while time-weighted averages ranged from 78 to 1,328 ppm. Halothane (151677) measurements made during administration to a small child revealed that the adjusted average personal exposure remained at the relatively high level of 28.5 ppm.
