Therapeutic nitric oxide generated from air with an electric spark

6 julio 2015

Treatment with inhaled nitric oxide can be life saving for newborns, children and adults with several dangerous conditions, but the availability of the treatment has been limited by the size, weight and complexity of equipment needed to administer the gas and the therapy’s high price. Now a research team has developed a lightweight, portable system that produces nitric oxide from the air by means of an electrical spark.
