As an asthma sufferer I usually cope with my seasonal attacks. Only when it turns to chronic bronchitis do I normally go to my gp. The symptoms stayed with me for several weeks this time and then one night it turned bad. I actually thought I might die. After constant gasps of my inhaler I eventually recovered. Next day got an appointment with an nurse who took various notes and temperature, blood/oxygen levels. All okay. I was then given a device to measure my nitric oxide levels, new one on me. Anything around 25 is normal, up to 51 is a grey area and anything over that means extra meds. Mine was 99!!!
The nurse went straight to my gp and came back with a steroids prescription and other meds.
I suppose my point to all of this is that with all of my attacks over the years I never had a nitric oxide test before, how many others may benefit from this test, but dont know it exists.
