      The story of oxygen.
      In the 1980′s, use of supplemental oxygen therapy increased after the NOTT (Nocturnal Oxygen Therapy Trial) and the MRC (Medical Research Council) trials demonstrated survival benefits of providing long-term oxygen therapy to patients with resting arterial partial pressure consistently less than 55 mm Hg.

      Today, more than one million people in the United States use long term oxygen therapy, the majority with chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD).

      Supplemental oxygen has allowed patients who otherwise would be homebound to be more mobile, to work, to exercise or attend pulmonary rehabilitation, travel, care for family members, and also to experience improvement in their symptoms, including dyspnea, ultimately improving their quality of life.
