FeNO Testing

What is FeNO testing?

FeNO testing is a simple non-invasive test that can help determine how much inflammation (irritation or swelling) you have in your airways, and if inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) treatments would be beneficial. FeNO testing is used in patients with asthma, COPD, pulmonary hypertension, cystic fibrosis, and other chronic pulmonary conditions.

Who can take a FeNO test?

Anyone ages 7 and up can have a FeNO test.

Who interprets a FeNO test?

All testing done in the Pulmonary Lab is reviewed and interpreted by the physicians at Montgomery Pulmonary Consultants. Once completed, your test results will be sent to your physician.
