PURPOSE: Fractional nitric oxide in exhaled breath (FENO) is increased in diseases with airway inflammation, especially eosinophilic inflammation. To assess the utility of FENO in disease we need to know its normal value in healthy individuals. American thoracic society (ATS) has given upper limit of normal FENO values as 50 ppb but studies have shown variability in FENO values among different populations. There is no data available about FENO values in healthy Indians.
