CPAP for Mild to Moderate Sleep Apnea

A late-breaking abstract (LBA 8) that will be presented at noon Pacific Time as an oral presentation demonstrates that people with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea may experience a clinically relevant and statistically significant improvement in functional status at eight weeks on active continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy.

The study analyses involved 113 people who were randomized to an active CPAP therapy treatment group, and 110 people who were randomized to a sham treatment group. The adjusted group difference in mean changes from baseline to week eight of treatment was 0.95 points on the Functional Outcomes of Sleep Questionnaire total score.

You can read the abstract in the

  2. I have rad that Sleep Apnea could be treated with natural methods!

  3. I think sometimes those studies and group therapies failed why?.. because people don't get serious during the therapy, that's the reason statistics aren't exactly what we expect about it.
