Rem Dude does not know what he is taking about yes maybe you
cant monitor what some staff member is breathing in for
recreational purposes but there is no dental office with n2o
meters so the staff and patients are not aware of how much is
being takien in at any one time exspecialy when there is a
leak . so even though there are guide lines there are not
manitory regulations on monitoring the gases . So dont write
what you dont know about!!
