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).

"LocumDeck is self-explanatory and having never made/sent an invoice before it's made my life a lot easier, and made me feel reassured I hadn’t forgotten anything important.

I’ve recommended it to my colleague/friend who is also starting out as a GP locum."
