Table 3 Duration of exposure parameters (AUC) during mechanical ventilation from baseline through day 28 or discharge

From: Association between inhaled nitric oxide treatment and long-term pulmonary function in survivors of acute respiratory distress syndrome

AUC Parameter Placebo
(N = 41)
Inhaled NO
(N = 51)
P Value
Inhaled NO (ppm days)a 0 114 ± 102 NA
FiO2 (% days) 7.6 ± 4.7 6.3 ± 4.5 0.151
PEEP (mmHg days) 113.4 ± 81.1 96.3 ± 75.9 0.261
  1. aValues are mean ± SD unless otherwise indicated. AUC, area under the curve; FiO2, fraction of inspired oxygen; N, number; NO, nitric oxide; PaO2, partial pressure of arterial oxygen; PEEP, positive-end expiratory pressure.
