Ages Eligible for Study:   21 Years to 80 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Have participated and completed the NOVEL 1 or NOVEL 2 studies.

  • Require nasal oxygen of ≥ 2 LPM during exertion, and ≥ 1 LPM at rest.
  • Exhibit dyspnea and have lung disease process dominated by COPD per the Study Investigator.
  • Have a self-reported MMRC Dyspnea Score ≥ 2 on a scale of 0-4.
  • Have spirometric evidence of COPD with an FEV1 of < 50% predicted and FEV1/FVC < 0.70, measured within the last 6 months (GOLD stage III and IV).
  • Have a resting respiratory rate of less than or equal to 30 bpm.
  • Be fluent in reading and speaking the English language.
  • Be able to clearly communicate and to indicate a self-assessment of dyspnea and/or fatigue.
  • Be willing and able to participate in, and to complete all required study procedures, including the ability to pull an E-sized oxygen cylinder.
  • Report having a smoking history of ≥ 10 pack-years.
  • Provide written informed consent to participate in the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

Subject must NOT meet any of the following criteria, or they will be excluded from study participation:

  • Be a current tobacco smoker
  • Have a history of pneumothorax in last 2 years.
  • Have a history of severe, giant bullae.
  • Have a history of unstable angina
  • Reports the onset of cardiac arrhythmia(s) within the past 7 days.
  • Report having serious epistaxis within the last 10 days.
  • Have a history of severe pulmonary hypertension and/or NYHA Stage III and IV decompensated heart failure.
  • Reports symptoms of acute COPD exacerbation within the past 48 hours.
  • Have been discharged from the hospital within 30 days of screening for infection or acute illness or COPD exacerbation.
  • Have a prescription or history of requiring > 8 LPM oxygen during exertion.
  • Have a history of serious allergic airways disease (e.g., high eosinophil count or elevated IgE).
  • Report or have evidence of LVEF < 30 %
  • Have a BMI > 40
  • Have a history of thoracotomy, sternotomy, major cardiopulmonary intervention (e.g., lung resection, open heart surgery), or any procedure 6 months before study entry likely to cause instability of pulmonary status.
  • Have a history of lung disease unrelated to smoking that affects oxygenation or survival.
  • Is participating in another intervention study or have participated within 90 days of enrollment.
  • Have endobronchial valves or other bronchial tree implants such as stents.
  • Have a disease or condition expected to cause death, inability to perform procedures for the trial, or inability to comply with the therapy.
  • Have a history of intolerance to oxygen therapy.
