    Abstract

    The measurement of fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) can assist in the diagnosis of asthma and may also act as a useful surrogate inflammatory marker on which to base treatment decisions in asthma management algorithms. Until recently, this technique was confined to research facilities and secondary care institutions. A portable nitric oxide analyzer (MINO; Aerocrine AB; Smidesvägen, Sweden) has been developed, but few data exist comparing this device with established, larger laboratory-based analyzers (NIOX; Aerocrine AB).
