inhaled nitric oxide therapy
Noxivent (nitric oxide) gas and NOxBOXi® system for inhaled nitric oxide therapy
Hospital healthcare professionals asked for another option and Praxair listened. There is a choice for inhaled nitric oxide therapy that is offered with no capital investment and consumption-based billing plan options.
Noxivent (nitric oxide) gas, for inhalation is a prescription drug available to healthcare professionals trained in the administration of inhaled nitric oxide therapy.
Noxivent is a vasodilator indicated to improve oxygenation and reduce the need for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in term and near-term (>34 weeks gestation) neonates with hypoxic respiratory failure associated with clinical or echocardiographic evidence of pulmonary hypertension in conjunction with ventilatory support and other appropriate agents.
The recommended dose is 20 ppm, maintained for up to 14 days or until the underlying oxygen desaturation has resolved and the neonate is ready to be weaned from the Noxivent therapy. Doses greater than 20 ppm are not recommended. Monitor for PaO2 and inspired NO2, and methemoglobin during Noxivent administration.
The Delivery Device
Noxivent gas requires patient monitoring and management to help avoid patient complications and risks. Noxivent gas should only be used with a calibrated NOxBOXi delivery system operated by trained personnel. Satisfactory completion of a Praxair provided training program is required. Only validated ventilator systems should be used in conjunction with Noxivent and NOxBOXi.
The NOxBOXi delivery device provides intelligent nitric oxide delivery with precise real-time monitoring of nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, and oxygen through a touch screen with a step-by-step guided interface to enable ease of use. It is designed for in-hospital use, with portable detachable head unit to provide uninterrupted treatment during transit and transfer situations, and may be used with invasive and non-invasive ventilation.
