Correct

- Encourage small, frequent meals

- Fluid restriction of 2L

- Provide supplemental oxygen at 5 L/ min via nasal cannula

- Bedrest to conserve energy

Rationale

Small frequent meals helps prevent hypoxia, rather than large long meals. COPD patients should increase their fluid intake to keep secretions thin. Supplemental oxygen at this level would not be appropriate. Bedrest is unnecessarily restictive.
