In episode 351, Mike and James welcome Danielle and Joey to the podcast and they go all PREMIUM on us. The new dynamic duo go over studies from 2 important areas – O2 for COPD and bariatric surgery for diabetes. At the end of the podcast we realize that Mike and James are superfluous when it comes to the podcast quality and usefulness – sad!
1) O2 in COPD
A Randomized Trial of Long-Term Oxygen for COPD with Moderate Desaturation
Effect of Home Noninvasive Ventilation With Oxygen Therapy vs Oxygen Therapy Alone on Hospital Readmission or Death After an Acute COPD Exacerbation: A Randomized Clinical Trial
2) Bariatric surgery for diabetes
