Assessing the use of initial oxygen therapy in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients: a retrospective audit of pre‐hospital and hospital emergency management
Carbon dioxide retention in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) exacerbations can be a complication of oxygen therapy. Current recommendations suggest an inspired oxygen level (FiO2) < 0.28, aiming for saturation (SpO2) of 88–92% until arterial blood gas analysis is available.
