Important Information Regarding NIOX®  

NIOX is a range of  hand-held devices for measuring FeNO by trained healthcare professionals.  NIOX is suitable for children and adults.  Consult User Manual for age restrictions in children.  FeNO measurements provide the physician with means of evaluating asthma patients’ response to anti-inflammatory therapy, as an adjunct to the established clinical and laboratory assessments in asthma.  Not all patients with asthma will have an elevated FeNO level.  FeNO levels should be interpreted in the clinical context.
