Extract

Background COPD is associated with impaired pulmonary gas exchange and cardiovascular disease. Travelling to high altitude may increase the risk of cardiac arrhythmia due to hypoxemia and central sleep apnea in COPD patients as previously shown in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. The current study investigates whether staying at moderate altitude increases markers of cardiovascular risk and arrhythmias in lowlanders with COPD and whether this can be prevented by nocturnal oxygen therapy.
