Russian scientists created the very first medical device producing nitrogen from the air
«This is a device which is utilized for stabilization of arterial pressure. There are no analogous instruments all over the world. Normally, one uses bottled gases where NO is oxidized and transformed to NO2. In contrast, we can take it directly from the air,» - Kostyukov said.
According to Kostyukov, the practical application of such devices will lead to the increase of an average lifetime in Russia by 2.5 years.
In medical practice, to treat distortions of pulmonary circulation, nitrogen oxide (NO) is applied. NO is synthesized chemically at on-site stations and delivered to hospitals in a bottled form. The device «Tianox» does the synthesis of inhalation NO from the air during gaseous discharge directly in the course of treatment.
