Quick and accurate measurement of FeNO. Without the expensive consumables and running costs.

The Bedfont® NObreath® is a simple to use, battery-powered handheld monitor that measures Fractional exhaled Nitric Oxide (FeNO) in the breath. The device has been designed for use in almost any clinical setting and can be used to test children as well as adults.

An adult patient blows into the NObreath® for 12 seconds giving an instant result for FeNO in ppb (parts per billion). The higher the FeNO reading the greater the inflammation in the airways.

A 12-second test in 4 easy steps.

1

The mouthpiece

The mouthpiece is supplied wrapped and is a long tube that connects to the front of the monitor. It contains a one-way valve and a viral bacterial filter reducing the risk of cross-infection between patients. A NObreath mouthpiece can be used multiple times by the same patient reducing the cost per test.

2

Initiate test

The monitor is easy to operate with its icon-based touchscreen display. Power up the monitor from the button located at the top of the monitor. Wait for monitor to warm up (typically appox. 20 seconds). To initiate the test, simply select the adult or child setting and follow the prompts.

3

Deep breath in…

When prompted, take a deep breath in and exhale. Very little respiratory effort is required. In order to succesfully complete the test, the breath should be exhaled at a steady flow for the duration of test. Resistance in the mouthpiece and the on-screen incentive help achieve this.

4

Test complete!

A green tick will appear if it is a good quality test. The reading will display immediatley afterwards as a single value in parts per billion on the screen. In accordance to the NICE guidance2, a reading of >40pbb is considered a positive test providing an indication that airway inflammation is present.

Free FeNO Chart PC Software. (COMING SOON)

FeNO Chart PC software comes free with the NObreath monitor as standard. It allows for test results stored on the monitor to be downloaded via USB cable to any PC.

The software facilitates the electronic recording of FeNO test results with trending in order to easily track patient compliance to prescribed medication for better management of the condition.

A PDF report option allows for easy export and attachment to any patient record system in just a few clicks.
