The viewpoints of the effects of anesthetic waste gas on the human body are roughly divided into two types: the intake of anesthetic waste gas poses a risk to human health and the intake of anesthetic waste gas does not substantially affect human health.

People who hold the view that “the intake of anesthetic waste is a risk to human health” believes that occupational exposure may affect liver, kidney and blood system, and further exposure may increase the risk of miscarriage and premature birth; when using nitrous oxide, after exposure is extended, The risk of DNA damage increases.
