Oxygen therapy has long become a cornerstone in the treatment of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases and other hypoxemic and hypercapnic chronic respiratory diseases. Studies have clearly shown benefits in terms of survival, improvement in dyspnea, exercise tolerance, and other associated conditions like pulmonary hypertension that arise due to the disease. However, guidelines regarding prescription of oxygen and to make choice of the delivery devices are not explicit… 

Oxygen devices and delivery systems

An overview of oxygen devices (oxygen concentrators, compressed gas cylinders and liquid oxygen) and delivery systems (high- and low-flow) is presented, aiming to offer updated knowledge to the multidisciplinary team members managing patients with respiratory failure, and therefore allowing appropriate selection of devices and Delivery systems that are tailored to the needs of each patient.

The effects of health education given by nurses to COPD patients on the daily oxygen concentrator usage time.

It was determined that 95.5% of patients did not get information about the use of OC and it may be recommended that patients receive continuous education and close monitoring of their results.

A Prototype of Intelligent Portable Oxygen Concentrator for Patients with COPD Under Oxygen Therapy

A system to automatically control a commercial POC devices is proposed with the aim of improving the used and efficacy of the therapy in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Anxiety in Patients with Chronic Cor Pulmonale and Its Effect on Exercise Capacity

The rate of anxiety in patients with CCP is relatively high, and effort should be made to engage simultaneously patients in psychotherapy, to reduce motor function in CCP patients.

Automatic Recognition of Daily Physical Activities for an Intelligent-Portable Oxygen Concentrator (iPOC)

A different approach to adjust automatically oxygen dosing in portable oxygen concentrators (POC) according to the physical activity performed by patients with COPD is presented, with the underlying idea is the hardware implementation of the SVM classifier to control the oxygen flow in intelligent portable oxygen Concentrators.

The clinical impact of new long-term oxygen therapy technology.

Each patient must undergo an individualized pulse-oximetry titration study by a knowledgeable and experienced respiratory therapist to ensure optimum dosing under all conditions of use, to preclude unintended desaturation with newer LTOT devices.

Options for Home Oxygen Therapy Equipment: Storage and Metering of Oxygen in the Home

Home oxygen therapy will need professionally trained respiratory therapists reimbursed for skills and service to ensure that patients receive optimal benefits from home oxygen equipment to improve patient outcomes and prevent complications and associated costs.

New Method for Oxygen Therapy in the Home using an Oxygen Concentrator

The Rimer-Birlec domiciliary oxygen concentrator has been used successfully in a patient's home but further use will require an increase in mechanical reliability and a decrease in noise.

Evaluation of pulsed dose oxygen delivery during exercise in patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

It is suggested that the pulsed dose oxygen conserving device was as effective as continuous flow oxygen in maintaining arterial oxygen saturation and that the use of this device was associated with similar improvements in exercise tolerance to patients taking continuous flowoxy therapy.

Transtracheal oxygen therapy: an effective and safe alternative to nasal oxygen administration.

It is concluded that transtracheal oxygen therapy is an effective and safe alternative to nasal oxygen administration, provided that it is restricted to a well-defined group of patients and applied by a motivated and experienced group of physicians.

Supportive therapy in COPD.

Supportive therapy in COPD includes long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT) and patient support groups as two cornerstones in a comprehensive program of care known as pulmonary rehabilitation. The rich

A system of transtracheal oxygen administration has been developed which is more effective for rehabilitating chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients than traditional systems for

Patient response to transtracheal oxygen delivery.

Results indicate the need for additional controlled studies to identify which patients will benefit most from those potentially promising system for delivery of chronic oxygen therapy and confirm findings of others that transtracheal oxygen delivery significantly reduces oxygen requirement.
