Tanash, Hanan LU ; Huss, Fredrik and Ekström, Magnus LU (2015) In The International Journal of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease 10. p.2479-2484
Abstract
Long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT) improves the survival time in hypoxemic chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Despite warnings about potential dangers, a considerable number of patients continue to smoke while on LTOT. The incidence of burn injuries related to LTOT is unknown. The aim of this study was to estimate the rate of burn injury requiring health care contact during LTOT.
