The purpose of this study is to determine if the study drug, inhaled nitric oxide (iNO), when given and breathed through an investigational study device, the INOpulse, may help treat patients at risk for pulmonary hypertension-pulmonary fibrosis. Another purpose of this study is to determine if using the INOpulse delivery device (drug and device combination) improves the levels of moderate to vigorous physical activity (for example walking, climbing stairs, household chores and cleaning and, exercise and hobbies), as measured by actigraphy (a non-invasive way to monitor rest/activity).
The RECOVER study is a nationwide clinical trial that has been approved by Medicare to provide additional evidence for the benefits of Vagus Nerve Stimulation (VNS) Therapy. Vagus Nerve Stimulation Therapy is an FDA-approved device for treating patients with TRD (Treatment Resistant Depression). It is implanted in the left chest area during a short outpatient procedure. The device delivers mild, intermittently pulsed signals to the vagus nerve in the neck that activate various parts of the brain.
