NIOX VERO® is one of the most used FeNO testing devices in the world.1
Asthma’s complexity and heterogeneity means that it’s not always easy to feel confident in diagnosis and management.2 Poorly controlled asthma can have long term consequences for patients.3,4,5
FeNO testing is now recommended for asthma care in guidelines across the globe.6,7 An accurate FeNO testing device can assist in diagnosing and managing asthma, and can help to optimize your treatment decision. The current ATS FeNO thresholds were derived from trials where NIOX technology was the most widely used device.7,8 Studies show that results from other FeNO testing devices are not interchangeable with NIOX.9,10,11,12,13
Reassuring reproducibility enables an accurate result to be delivered in a single test.
Environmental NO levels can vary significantly and have the potential to impact the accuracy of FeNO testing.15 The NIOX NO scrubber eliminates the impact of ambient NO, helping to ensure accuracy and reproducibility irrespective of the surroundings and environment.
Once the test have been completed, it takes approximately 1 minute to produce the accurate FeNO result for your patient.
Circassia, the first to develop a point-of-care FeNO device over 20 years ago.
NIOX VERO® automatically performs self-checks when the device is switched on. All sensors are individually calibrated during manufacturing to ensure accuracy through their stated lifetime without any need to re-calibrate.
Due to variations in sensor technology, other FeNO devices are not directly interchangeable with NIOX.9,10,11,12,13
NIOX VERO is easy to use for healthcare professionals and patients alike. A choice of three engaging animations along with the optional inclusion of NIOX Apps (NIOX Panel and NIOX Patient) provide the flexibility to tailor the experience as needed. The NIOX VERO device is lightweight and portable allowing easy movement within the clinical setting.
In one study, after FeNO measurement, clinicians modified their treatment plan in 31% of cases of which 90% involved changes to ICS medications.2 Studies have also shown up to a 50% reduction in exacerbations where NIOX has been used to regularly test asthma patients in a clinical setting.16,17
