PRESTIGIOUS ASTHMA SOCIETIES SUPPORT FeNO MEASUREMENT
As the leader in the measurement of fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO), Aerocrine is excited to announce that 2 prestigious asthma societies have formally endorsed FeNO measurement as a valuable tool for use in the assessment and management of asthma.
Last week, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAAI) and the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) released a joint position statement1 endorsing and supporting the American Thoracic Society’s (ATS) clinical practice guideline: Interpretation of Exhaled Nitric Oxide for Clinical Applications. The endorsement by the ACAAI and AAAAI underscores the importance of measuring FeNO to asses airway inflammation when determining appropriate treatment for patients with asthma.
The ATS guideline, which was published in September 2011, defines clinical situations in which FeNO testing is appropriate, as well as specific cut points to use when interpreting FeNO levels.2 The ATS guideline, now endorsed by the AAAAI and ACAAI, notes that FeNO testing provides valuable information to the physican that traditional clinical tools cannot provide.
We appreciate your support and will keep you updated on future news about FeNO measurement via monthly e-mails and communication with your local Aerocrine representatives.
