For many years, health care providers have believed that the most effective form of treatment for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease was to use high flow oxygen compared to titrated oxygen. However, with recent studies, researchers have found that in many circumstances high flow oxygen can cause more damage than good for COPD patients. In our research study we will compare the use of high flow oxygen and titrated oxygen in hospital patients with acute exacerbations of COPD and monitor how these types of oxygen therapy affect the patients' oxygen saturation.
