- Non-invasive, quick and easy to perform5
- Shows patient’s response to treatment, enabling the correct prescription of medication and safer/monitored adjustments
- Aids in identifying patients who do/do not require on-going treatment6
What is FeNO?
Airway inflammation is a central process in asthma and other lung diseases3. Being able to detect eosinophilic airway inflammation and monitor a patient’s response to treatment is regarded as a gold standard in the management of respiratory diseases. Nitric oxide measurement is not intended as a stand-alone method for diagnosis and should be used in conjunction with other evaluation methods and tests4. Using FeNO measurements to evaluate airway inflammation in asthma represents a significant advance in respiratory medicine5, but until now this has been an expensive test to deliver in everyday practice.

Benefits of FeNO use
- Shows patient compliance
- Shown to be superior to the majority of conventional tests of lung function, such as peak flow recording and spirometry5
- Aids in differentiating between allergic (eosinophillic) and non-allergic asthma7.
