Most of the studied COPD patients desaturated during the BWT. O(2) administration avoided desaturation and could increase the distance walked and reduce dyspnea, but these effects were not related to walking desaturation in individual cases. Improvements were not a placebo effect. The therapeutic role of O(2) during activities in some patients with severe COPD needs to be individually assessed.
