Ambient Nitric Oxide: The Real Insight

329

Published on

Nitric oxide in air constitutes what is called ‘ambient NO’. Most of the inhaled ambient NO enters the pulmonary blood by diffusion and binds to hemoglobin.The residual NO becomes part of the exhaled breath that only appears in the initial wash-out phase of a typical 11-second exhaled breath. Ambient NO is a function of the location, time of day etc. and can vary between 0 ppb and upwards of 200 ppb.

Transcript of "Ambient Nitric Oxide: The Real Insight"

  1. 1. Ambient Nitric Oxide: The Real Insight Ambient Nitric Oxide: The Real Insight The Insight eNO System does NOT require inhalation of NO free air The ATS/ERS recommendations (2005) for standardized measurement of exhaled nitric oxide states that it is not necessary but only preferred to use NO (nitric oxide) free air for inhalation. The Insight™ eNO System does not require NO free air to be inhaled prior to the measurement because ambient NO (nitric oxide in air) does not interfere with the results. The findings of the study are detailed below.
