Target Audience
This educational activity is designed for physicians, surgeons, and healthcare professionals involved with solid organ transplantation.

Educational Objectives
  • Describe the nitric oxide signaling pathway, including the mechanism of action of modulators and their physiologic effects in different organ systems
  • Explain the pharmacologic effects of iNO on vascular tone, inflammatory markers, and apoptosis pathways and their potential role in solid organ transplant
  • Compare and contrast the pulmonary and extrapulmonary effects of iNO with other classes of commonly-used pulmonary vasodilators (inhaled and infused prostacyclins, other nitric oxide donors, and endothelin pathway modulators) in solid organ transplant
  • Illustrate the utility of iNO in different transplant surgeries, and discuss potential adverse effects and complications of iNO administration, compared with other studied options.
  • Discuss how to incorporate clinical research findings on current and emerging therapeutic applications of nitric oxide pathway modulators in critical care settings into patient care strategies after transplant surgery.
