BACKGROUND Inhaled nitric oxide (NO) has been shown to be a selective pulmonary vasodilator in certain patients with primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH). OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to design and test a system for delivery of NO to awaken, ambulatory patients with PPH and to evaluate this system in the home setting.
