Welcome to the PERF's electronic newsletter. We hope that this new way of distributing up-to-date information in the field of pulmonary rehabilitation education and research will serve our community better than the 'old-fashioned' printed and snail-mailed Newsletter. Please let us know what you think and what you would like to see in the eNewsletter by sending an e-mail to perf@perf2ndwind.org.

Dear Friends,

Dr. Tom Petty has asked us to send the following message out to all of you who might have contact with oxygen patients. Spread the word!

Mary Burns

Towards a New Book

Now that I am a consumer, I have gained additional perspective about LTOT. I decided to write a book, "Adventures of an Oxy-Phile". I will cite the scientific basis for LTOT in appendices, but start with my own adventures beginning with our first studies of ambulatory LTOT in 1965. I will then add my own vignettes "from the other end of the stethoscope".

I hope you and your friends will contribute a one-to-two page anecdote of something funny, frustrating or especially interesting about LTOT. Please have these sent to NLHEP@aol.com.

This should be fun to put this together and will probably stimulate a lot of readership. Hopefully CMS might be interested. I hope your summer is going well.

Best Regards,

Tom Pety
