ABSTRACT
The authors reflect on the active research of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease at the meetings of the British Thoracic Society and in "Thorax" in Great Britain. The said disease reflects the demographics of smoking cessation and the availability of more effective treatments to reduce the impact of the condition. Moreover, the authors note that the development of controlled oxygen therapy was based on knowledge of oxygen delivery to the tissues.
