Nitrous oxide and neutrophil chemotaxis in man.


Inhalation of 60% nitrous oxide in oxygen by seven adult male volunteers for 60 min was found to increase significantly polymorphonuclear leuocyte (PMN) chemotaxis, but not to influence total white or PMN blood cell counts. Also, the addition or morphine 0.2 mg kg-1 i.v. during the breathing of nitrous oxide did not alter any variable. These results indicate that nitrous oxide and nitrous oxide incombination with morphine do not depress PMN chemotaxis.
