Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Long-term O2 prescription in chronic non-COPD hypoxic lung disease is, at present, based largely on physiological rather than on clinical studies. Controlled long-term studies in this field are difficult to perform. The cooperation of many centers is necessary to obtain a large and homogeneous population as the incidence of these diseases is significantly lower than COPD.
