Nitric Oxide Delivery Units

Definition : Delivery Units designed to administer nitric oxide (NO) into the respiratory system, some may include gas monitoring capabilities. These units may synchronize the delivery of NO with patient respiration (inhalation) to minimize the spontaneous reaction of NO with oxygen to form potentially toxic oxides (e.g., NO2). Nitric oxide delivery units are used to dilate the pulmonary vasculature in the treatment of neonates with hypoxic respiratory failure; they may be also used in adults for treatment of primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) and/or acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
