BACKGROUND Nitric oxide is released from pulmonary endothelial cells and contributes to the low pulmonary vascular resistance. The resistance pulmonary arteries are in close anatomical proximity to membranous airways, so it is likely that some pulmonary endothelial nitric oxide will enter the airspace to allow its measurement in the exhaled breath. METHODS Exhaled air was collected from a single full exhalation and during tidal breathing. This was analysed for concentrations of nitric oxide… CONTINUE READING
