The use of inhaled nitric oxide in the critically ill has increased significantly over the past few years but little published information exists on standards for current practice. Sixty-four intensive therapy units in the UK were surveyed by questionnaire from which 54 (84.4%) satisfactory replies were received. We present the survey results and put forward recommendations based on current literature and our own clinical experience for the safe use of inhaled nitric oxide.
