Administration

Nitric Oxide Delivery System

GENOSYL must be administered using a calibrated GENOSYL Delivery System. Only validated ventilator systems should be used in conjunction with GENOSYL [see Description (11)].

Consult the GENOSYL Delivery System Operator’s Manual or call 1-877-337-4118 or visit www.vero-biotech.com for needed information on training and technical support for users of GENOSYL with the GENOSYL Delivery System .

Keep available a backup power supply to address power failures. The GENOSYL Delivery System consists of a primary system and a fully functional second system that can be used as backup in the event of primary system failure.

Monitoring

Measure methemoglobin within 4-8 hours after initiation of treatment with GENOSYL and periodically throughout treatment [see Warnings and Precautions (5.2)].

Monitor for PaO2 and inspired NO2 during GENOSYL administration [see Warnings and Precautions (5.3)].

The concentration of nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide and air is constantly monitored. The GENOSYL Delivery System will shutdown if nitrogen dioxide reaches 3 ppm.

Weaning and Discontinuation

Avoid abrupt discontinuation of GENOSYL [see Warnings and Precautions (5.1)]. To wean GENOSYL, down titrate in several steps, pausing several hours at each step to monitor for hypoxemia.
