Response to inhaled nitric oxide (NO) is not associated with changes of plasma cGMP levels in patients with acute lung injury.

Abstract

BACKGROUND A clinically relevant increase of PaO subset2 or decrease of pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) upon inhalation of NO (iNO) does occur in only 60 to 80% of patients with acute lung injury. The mechanisms for divergent responses of different patients have not yet been fully elucidated. Since NO mediates its pulmonary effects by stimulating… (More)
