ABSTRACT
In August 2004 issue of the journal "Thorax," N.J. Stevenson and P.M.A. Calverley provide more evidence for a lack of effect of short burst oxygen therapy in the relief of dyspnoea following exercise in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This study follows other recent publications that appear to draw the same conclusion. Oxygen therapy for the management of chronic COPD comes in various forms. Long term oxygen therapy (LTOT) prescribing has an accepted evidence base and any patient considered for short burst treatment should first have undergone an assessment for LTOT.
