Effect of CPAP-withdrawal on blood pressure in OSA: data from three randomized-controlled trials

Abstract:

Background

Based on meta-analyses, the blood pressure (BP) lowering effect of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is reported to be approximately 2-3mmHg. This figure is derived from heterogeneous trials, often limited by poor CPAP-adherence, and thus possibly underestimating the treatment effect. We analyzed morning BP data from three randomized controlled CPAP withdrawal trials which included only patients with optima...
