Abstract:

Manual titration of nasal continuous positive airway pressure (NCPAP) treatment for obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is time consuming and expensive. There are now 'intelligent' NCPAP machines that try to find the ideal pressure for a patient by monitoring some combination of apnoeas, hypopnoeas, inspiratory flow limitation and snoring.
