    The article focuses on the use of oxygen therapy in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Long term oxygen therapy (LTOT) is one of the few treatments which has significant survival benefits in patients with severe hypoxaemia. In less severe hypoxaemic patients the benefits of LTOT on...

    Exercise training is the cornerstone of pulmonary rehabilitation. However, patients may not be able to exercise at a level that produces a training effect because of limitations related to their underlying lung disease. Adjuncts during exercise training may increase their exercise capacity and...
