A nitric oxide sensor can be used in products that monitor patients in intensive care and premature infants in neonatal units who are receiving inhaled nitric oxide therapy to assist with breathing difficulties. It can also be deployed in instruments that measure nitric oxide in the breath of patients who suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The device requires 10-second exposures to reliably read the nitric oxide content of exhaled breath, which does not need to be adjusted to a particular temperature or pressure. It will resolve down to 10 ppb and can operate in temperatures ranging from 10° to 30°C. The compact size allows manufacturers to incorporate the sensor in small instruments.
