Answers to frequently asked questions

What is FeNO?

FeNO stands for “fractional exhaled nitric oxide”, and is a standardized breath sample obtained from the bronchi. The NO that thus becomes measurable is used as a biomarker for the diagnosis and follow-up of bronchial asthma.

Why is FeNO measured?

Following an allergic reaction, the epithelial cells* in the lower respiratory tract produce increased amounts of NO. The nitric oxide or NO concentration in the exhaled breath therefore reflects the degree of allergic inflammation in the respiratory tract. The more severe the inflammation is, the more NO is produced and measured as FeNO.

*Epithelial cells lie together in single or multiple cell layers and cover all inner and outer surfaces of the human body.

What are the advantages of FeNO measurement at home?

Measuring FeNO at home helps you monitor the progression of the airway inflammation. Controlling asthma treatment by means of regular FeNO measurements can help to reduce the frequency of acute asthma episodes. A worsening of the inflammation is indicated by increased FeNO values, enabling your doctor to take therapeutic countermeasures at an early stage.

Do the health insurance funds absorb the costs for FeNO measurement?

No. The costs for the Vivatmo me home monitoring device are not covered by the statutory health insurance funds in Germany. In some countries, FeNO measurement is reimbursed in the medical practice; in Germany, for example, by private health insurance companies.
