Abstract [en]

Background: Measuring FENO is a novel and non-invasive way to monitor airway inflammation (e.g. asthma). This clinical study was designed to investigate whether drinking ethanol might distort FENO measurements. Methods: Twenty healthy subjects drank 0.40 g ethanol/kg body weight in 15 min. Measurement of FENO started ∼ 30 min before drinking and at various times afterwards for 4 h post-dosing. Ethanol concentrations were determined in venous blood by gas chromatography and in end-exhaled breath by infra-red spectrometry. Results: The within subject standard deviation for determination of FENO was 1.3 ppb, corresponding to a CV of 7.7%. The mean change in FENO from pre-drinking levels during the 4 h testing was statistically significant (P
