Garage Gadget Tests Hypothesis

  • FCCC system

    • Controls and measures the amount of oxygen that passes over cells

  • Testing the link between hypoxia and NO production

    • FCCC delivers normal, low, or fluctuating levels of oxygen to cells

    • Researchers measure NO and iNOS levels in the cells

    • Results suggest intermittent hypoxia can cause inflammation
