FeNO NIOX and nNO (Nasal)
New NIOX Aerocrine-Fractional exhaled Nitric Oxide (FeNO) and Nasal Nitric Oxide(nNO) monitoring
Accurately assess and monitor airway inflammation
Fractional Exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) is a quantitative, noninvasive, simple, and safe method of measuring airway inflammation that provides a complementary tool to other ways of assessing airways disease in asthma patients.
Specifically, FeNO is an objective measurement of allergic/eosinophilic inflammation. Airway inflammation results from the activation of mast cells and antigen-specific T-helper cells type 2 (Th2) resulting in the production of cytokines including interleukin (IL)-4, IL-5, and IL-13.3 This is an important distinction as Th2 allergic inflammation and eosinophilic inflammation are not one in the same. However, they are very closely associated with similar molecular pathways and crossover.
- In Diagnosis of Asthma and Identifies Patients with Th2/Type 2 Allergic/Eosinophilic Inflammation
- Determine Steroid Responsiveness and Optimise the Dose of Inhaled Steroids
- Uncover Non-Adherence to Inhaled Corticosteroids
- Reduce the Likelihood of Exacerbations in Patients at Risk for Future Events
- Identify Asthmatics Who Are Possible Candidates for Treatment with a Biologic
To date, over 18 million tests have been performed using a NIOX device, supporting clinicians to enhance the accuracy of diagnosis and better-personalized control.
Aerocrine provides a range of programs and connectivity solutions for use with NIOX ®(FeNO) . A fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) breath testing monitor to measure airway inflammation and improve asthma management.To measure FeNO and aid in diagnosing asthma, in adults and children, as well as monitoring and managing asthma symptoms of patients. Aerocrine is continuously developing and documenting FeNO measurement as a valuable diagnostic tool in the management of airway disease.
Nasal Nitric Oxide(nNO)
- nNO has been shown to be decreased in patients with PCD.
- Measurement of nNO can assist in the identification of cases of PCD according to ERS guidelines.
- Effective screening of patients with low risk can rule out non PCD cases and avoid further invasive and expensive confirmatory tests, whilst not missing true cases.
NIOX VERO® nNO application provides a non-invasive and cost-efficient way to differentiate patients with PCD from healthy individuals.
NIOX VERO is the only CE marked nNO device with documented clinical data for differentiating patients with PCD from healthy individuals.
NIOX VERO® is a non-invasive, simple and safe, and time-saving FeNO device which offers:
- Accurate FeNO results in a single measurement at the point of care
- FeNOresults in approximately ONE minute
- Routine FeNO monitoring to aid in treatment optimization
- The ability to evaluate an asthma patient’s response to anti-inflammatory therapy
- Provides an additional external display with a choice of three different animations
- Enables the device to be remotely controlled from the PC or tablet
- When you connect, the screen on your desktop replicates the screen on NIOX VERO
- Provides a service log which can be downloaded for Customer Support in case of troubleshooting
