Please be advised that due to the high volume of submissions, the ANZCTR is currently experiencing delays in processing submissions from those outside of Australia and New Zealand. As the ANZCTR is funded by Australia and New Zealand, we must prioritise submissions from these countries first. International submissions should allow additional time for registration. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
Following explanation of the trial and consent, participants will be assessed for eligibility. If eligible, participants will be randomised to the order of interventions (21% oxygen and 50% oxygen). The unblinded investigator will make available the gas bottles and bags (containing either 21% or 50% oxygen) in the randomised order. The labels on the bottles will be covered to maintain the blinding of blinded investigator (who will record outcome data) and the participant.
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
By computer.

Summary
Brief summary
This study directly relates to the trial
ACTRN12612000393853. As there is concern regarding the accuracy of the data collected by the specific transcutaneous probes used with that study (measuring carbon dioxide, oxygen levels and heart rate), the study is being repeated using a Sentec transcutaneous monitor. The Ethics approval number and UTN remain the same, however ANZCTR required a new trial registration number. Two new outcome measures have been added (end tidal carbon dioxide, to further assess the mechanisms behind any change in carbon dioxide, and drift corrected carbon dioxide (a function of the Sentec monitor to improve accuracy)).


Oxygen therapy has been shown to increase carbon dioxide in the blood of patients with certain respiratory conditions. This study aims to find out if oxygen therapy increases carbon dioxide levels in patients with neuromuscular disease and, if so, how.
