Exhaled nitric oxide (NO) arises from both airway and alveolar regions of the lungs, which provides an opportunity to characterize region-specific inflammation. Current methodologies rely on vital capacity breathing maneuvers and controlled exhalation flow rates, which can be difficult to perform, especially for young children and individuals with compromised lung function. In addition, recent theoretical and experimental studies demonstrate that gas-phase axial diffusion of NO has a… CONTINUE READING
