Abstract

Inhaled nitric oxide is a pulmonary vasodilator that enhances gas exchange in compromised lungs. Treatment with nitric oxide may benefit adults who have severe pulmonary disease. As more knowledge is gained and clinical experiences with this therapy increase, patients' outcomes most likely will show significant improvement, with increases in survival rates.
