    ABSTRACT. The sampling of exhaled breath is a noninvasive procedure that can be performed easily in adults, children, and patients with respiratory disease. Several studies have demonstrated increased exhaled nitric oxide in patients with pulmonary disease, including asthma. In addition, exhaled...

    Aims: It is controversial whether or not pulmonary nitric oxide (NO) production, reflected in the end-tidal alveolar NO concentration, is diminished in patients with heart failure. Since pulmonary perfusion is regulated by NO production, decreased NO production in the pulmonary vasculature is...
