This article discusses the use of nitric oxide in the treatment of diseases. It explains the ability of inhaled nitric oxide to reduce the use of extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in neonates with pulmonary hypertension. It also notes the effectiveness of inhaled nitric oxide in improving the condition of adults with type 1 respiratory failure. The article also reminds about the failure of nitric oxide in the treatment of septic shock.

    Background: We have shown earlier that inhaled nitric oxide (iNO) administered by oxygen hood reduces pulmonary hypertension in an animal model (J Perinatol 2002; 22:50-6). Our objective in this study was to determine feasibility of iNO by oxygen hood in neonates with elevated alveolar-arterial...
