Long-term oxygen therapy has been proven to improve survival in COPD patients with severely impaired oxygenation. However, does the COPD patient with moderately impaired oxygenation also benefit from supplemental long-term oxygen therapy? The Long-Term Oxygen Treatment Trial (LOTT), a randomized clinical trial published in 2016, was designed to evaluate the efficacy of supplemental oxygen for this patient population. This presentation will discuss the design and results of the multi-center LOTT and the implications on patient care.
