Non-medical, recreational use of nitrous oxide (N2O) has had a huge resurgence in recent years, with growing concern that regular use can lead to nerve damage and that the ‘new’ method of balloon is increasing the risk of fainting and disorientation. This presentation will report on data on N2O use from the Global Drug Survey based on almost 20,000 recent users.
