Role of intermittent hypoxia in the treatment of bronchial asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

Summary: Recent research outlines the value of IHT as a therapeutic strategy for the treatment of COPD patients, leading to more efficient ventilation. Additionally, IHT might represent an attractive method to complement the known beneficial effects of exercise training and to rebalance early autonomic dysfunction in COPD patients. Future research examining the potential risks and benefits of IHT could pave the way for the development of new therapeutic approaches for patients suffering from bronchial asthma and COPD.
