Autopap titration

Mandy Law, Matthew Naughton, Sally Ho, Teanau Roebuck, Eli Dabscheck
STUDY OBJECTIVES: Depression is a risk factor for medication non-compliance. We aimed to identify if depression is associated with poorer adherence during home-based autotitrating continuous positive airway pressure (autoPAP) titration. DESIGN: Mixed retrospective-observational study. SETTING: Academic center. PARTICIPANTS: Two-hundred forty continuous positive airway pressure-naïve obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: To test the utility of an integrated clinical pathway for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) diagnosis and continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment using portable monitoring devices. DESIGN: Randomized, open-label, parallel group, unblinded, multicenter clinical trial comparing home-based, unattended portable monitoring for diagnosis and autotitrating CPAP (autoPAP) compared with in-laboratory polysomnography (PSG) and CPAP titration. SETTING: Seven American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) accredited sleep centers...

STUDY OBJECTIVES: To our knowledge, a systematic study of the effect of air leak on adherence to auto-titrating positive airway pressure (autoPAP) therapy has not been reported. We hypothesized that in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), greater levels of air leak were associated with poor adherence to autoPAP therapy. DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study SETTING: Academic Center PARTICIPANTS: Ninety-six consecutive patients with high probability for OSA...
