The NObreath® fractional exhaled nitric oxide test monitor, recommended in the NICE guidance for measuring FeNO concentration in Asthma (DG12).
Measuring FeNO with NObreath® FeNO tester allows consistent, non-invasive measurement of expired breath Nitric Oxide (NO). This can be used as a marker for airway inflammation and on-going monitoring of treatment.
What is FeNO testing?
It is a simple breath test that measures the level of Nitric Oxide Concentration that the body naturally produces in the airways.
The test is very simple to perform and easy to interpret with a single value reading in parts per billion (ppb).1,2 Unlike spirometry, it requires minimal patient compliance and respiratory effort.
A positive FeNO reading in conjunction with spirometry and peak flow tests can help confirm a diagnosis of asthma in a patient and/or support ongoing treatment for the disease.1
Why FeNO testing?
Quick and accurate measurement of FeNO. Without the expensive consumables and running costs.
An adult patient blows into the NObreath® for 12 seconds giving an instant result for FeNO in ppb (parts per billion). The higher the FeNO reading the greater the inflammation in the airways.
