Nice | Exhaled nitric oxide measurement in asthma

This new guideline from NICE looks at measuring exhaled Nitric Oxide (eNO) in asthma. I have never heard of this, so I’ll just lay out the guidance and then give a bit more of an explanation as to what this is all about.

NICE recommendations

Measuring eNO is recommended as an option to aid diagnosis of asthma in both adults and children if:

  • There is an intermediate possibility of them having asthma (helpfully defined as where the diagnosis is uncertain)
  • It is done in combination with other diagnostic options (eg clinical judgment / spirometry / reversibility testing etc).

"I rely on the NASGP for advice and support. I use LocumDeck for all my locum admin -my profile, certificates, Ts and Cs, practice contacts, booking and invoicing sessions, pension A and B forms, recording mileage and other expenses and monthly earnings.

Having been a locum in the past without LocumDeck, I realise how much easier LocumDeck makes my life, especially as I don't enjoy admin. It automates much of the admin for me. I can see at a glance how many bookings I have and where the gaps are. I have some practices who instant book me - booking directly into free sessions I have added. I have income/expenditure spreadsheets to share with my accountant.

I would highly recommend it to others."
