During inflammation, expression of an inducible form of NOS (iNOS) is increased predominantly in vascular smooth muscle. NO production by iNOS is unregulated and an order of magnitude greater than that of eNOS. The subsequent overproduction of NO is associated with a decrease in blood pressure, impaired vascular reactivity, abnormal RBC deformability and reduced oxygen consumption. Although inhibiting NO during sepsis increases blood pressure, it also reduces microvascular blood flow and exacerbates abnormal oxygen transport.
