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 have been working with NASGP as the main source of income since graduating. I can't recommend them more highly for newly-graduated GPs. They helped me with setting my terms and conditions and they even arranged a tutorial session about EMIS, as the system was new to me.

LocumDeck is a great help when it comes to organising sessions, pension forms and invoices for tax purposes.

NASGP was particularly supportive during the Covid-19 period. It recognised the effect it had on locum work, temporarily waived the already small fee on sessions and were keen on getting the members together in regular video meetings.

I'm a satisfied member of NASGP. "
