Our Entonox Awareness course gives you the basics on how to manage and deliver Entonox to a patient. Entonox is a prescription drug and completing this course will not give you the authority to buy, rent or administer Entonox but it will give all the skills to help a qualified person to administer Entonox and give you the skills to be trained with the practical side by an authorised person in your workplace.

Understanding how to use Entonox will allow you to assist in giving it to a patient by a qualified person. This course is part of our First Person On Scene blended online course.
