Pulmonary Fibrosis Ambulatory Oxygen Trial (PFOX)

Grant number: 1139953 | Funding period: 2018 - 2023



Low oxygen levels during exercise occur in over half of all people with lung fibrosis and this is associated with poor outcomes. Low oxygen levels are sometimes treated by breathing extra oxygen during physical activity, but a lack of evidence has given rise to wide variations in practice and policy. This study will examine the benefits and costs of ambulatory oxygen therapy for people with lung fibrosis in a multi-site randomised controlled trial.
