An oxygen therapy device improves tolerance to exertion in patients with interstitial lung disease

One of the most important components in treating patients with interstitial lung disease, such as pulmonary fibrosis, is oxygen therapy. Nevertheless, when engaging in physical exertion, the oxygen provided may prove to be insufficient in many cases. To improve this situation, the Interstitial Lung Disease Working Group at Hospital Clínic has put a new combined non‑invasive ventilation (NIV) device to the test, associated with oxygen therapy.
