FeNO measurement (NIOX)

FeNO stands for fractionated exhaled nitric oxide. The concentration of nitric oxide in exhaled air is measured. The value provides information about the presence and severity of allergic inflammation in the airways. The test is carried out by deeply inhaling and exhaling through a filter connected to a sensor.

 

This measurement is useful for monitoring the course of asthma therapy.
