C. Correct response: A manual NO delivery system is provided by the INOvent delivery system. With an O2 flow to the manual ventilator set at 15 L/minute, INOvent injects gas to provide an NO concentration of 20 ppm. As with any manual ventilator system for NO, the bag should be squeezed three to five times to clear residual NO2 before the ventilator is attached to the patient.
