Relative accuracy of algorithm-based prescription of nasal CPAP in OSA.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Patients with OSA on nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) have considerable night-to-night variation in their pressure requirements, suggesting that a one-night titration might not be very precise. This study investigates the likely error incurred using a one-night titration, and explores whether an algorithm-based approach to determine the pressure is as accurate. METHODS: Thirty patients with OSA used an autotitrating CPAP device for 28 nights and the average was reg...
