Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease at Altitude - Effect of Nocturnal Oxygen on Breathing and Sleep

Patients with moderate to severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease living below 800 m will be invited to participate in a randomized, cross-over field trial evaluating the hypothesis that nocturnal breathing and sleep during nights spent at moderate altitude are improved by oxygen therapy via a nasal cannula compared to room ...

Reduction of Corticosteroid Use in Outpatient Treatment of Exacerbated COPD

Background Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a major public health issue with no curative treatment. In Switzerland estimated 5-7% of the total population are suffering from this chronic disease. According to current guidelines corticosteroids are part of treatment of acute exacerbations in COPD patients. Several studies suggest that corticosteroids ...

Intervention Study to Investigate Supplemental Oxygen in COPD

Study design The study will employ a parallel design for 6 months including 144 patients (72 patients/group). Patients will be randomized to intervention or control group. The intervention comprises supplemental oxygen to be used during physical activity for 6 months. The control group will receive the same physical activity instructions ...

Pilot Study of Physiological Effect of High-Flow Nasal Cannula on Respiratory Pattern and Work of Breathing

HFNC has been shown to have many advantages in the treatment of acutely hypoxemic patients, improving their clinical outcome. The exact mechanism underlying this beneficial effect is still not completely understood. Few studies have analyzed the effect of HFNC on ventilatory pattern and work of breathing. The majority of these ...
