This is a summary of the recent Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand Clinical Practice Guideline on Adult Domiciliary Oxygen Therapy (available at http://www.thoracic.org.au),1 which revises a previous position statement published in 2005. Changes to previous recommendations are highlighted, and explanation is provided in cases where recommendations have not changed, generally because of absence of new evidence. Recommendations are based upon available evidence, and the revised Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) approach was used to categorise recommendations
