Doctors from all over the world are searching for whether the nitric oxide gas that gave us the “little blue pill” Viagra will also help treat the new coronavirus.

Nitric oxide is a colorless gas that helps to expand blood vessels, which in turn increases the amount of oxygen flowing throughout the body. It was used to treat newborns with heart defects, then it was developed into Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction in men.

Now, according to the Daily Mail report, scientists from 3 US states and 3 European countries are testing the drug that contains nitric oxide gas, to clarify whether it can provide oxygen to the blood vessels needed by the lungs, and avoid patients from the need for ventilation fans in rooms Intensive care.

For years, doctors have been using a mixture of nitric oxide mixture with oxygen, in critical care to expand blood vessels to treat children with birth defects.

In addition, gas was found to have antiviral properties against various types of coronaviruses, as was demonstrated when nitric oxide was tested in patients during the 2002-2003 epidemic of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), which is from the same family of the new virus Corona.

“It’s a pretty cool drug,” Dr. Lorenzo Pera, a critical care specialist at Massachusetts General Hospital and leader of the new experiment, told the Boston Herald. “He has a low risk profile.”

Patients with mild to moderate coronavirus will inhale nitric oxide through the CPAP device for 20 to 30 minutes a day and twice a day for two weeks.

Researchers hope that gas will “kill” the virus in the lungs, reduce damage to the lungs, and reduce the number of patients who need to use a ventilator.
