SOLNA, Sweden (PRWEB) May 06, 2013
Aerocrine AB announced today that their NIOX MINO® device will be featured in an upcoming episode of Health Heroes, set to air later this year via the Discovery Channel.
Aerocrine is focused on improving the management and care of patients with inflammatory airway diseases, such as asthma. This segment of Health Heroes will focus on Aerocrine's NIOX MINO®, a point-of-care device designed to measure fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO), a marker for allergic airway inflammation.
Patients with allergic airway inflammation generally have higher than normal levels of nitric oxide in their exhaled breath. Audiences will learn how using the NIOX MINO allows physicians to measure the concentration of nitric oxide in an exhaled breath, in order to evaluate allergic airway inflammation.
“FeNO is a vital sign of allergic airway inflammation and patients need to be aware of their FeNO number to help appropriately manage their disease,” states Ken Marshall, US President of Aerocrine.
“This innovation is used to perform a quick, objective and non-invasive breath test in order to give your healthcare provider insight to the level of airway inflammation," said Michele Nehls, producer for the Health Heroes series. “I’m proud to be able to educate our audience on NIOX MINO® test and the remarkable things Aerocrine's doing to help patients suffering from underlying asthma."
