Background. Nitric oxide was used as an important selective vasodilator in the treatment of acute respiratory failure
accompanied with high pulmonary resistance in children and adults since late 80’s.
Methods and Results. Paper includes remarks about nitric oxide physiology in organism. Group of 33 patients is presented
(group I 26 newborns, group II 7 children) in which selective pulmonary vasodilation with nitric oxide was
used. According to response to NO subject were classified into subgroups of responders, non-responders. In evaluation
of oxygenation status OI (oxygenation index), A-a DO2 (alveoloarterial difference) and paO2/FiO2 were used.
Conclusions. Significant differences of above mentioned values were revealed between responders and non-responders
in group I (newborns). Significant differences were not revealed in group II (children). Results are in accordance
with other papers.
