Slow-Wave Activity in Sleep Apnea Patients Before and After Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Treatment: Discussion

Results of the present study show that there is a lower amount of SWA across the night, and especially in the first two NREM episodes, before treatment compared to posttreatment values. Comparison between control subjects and untreated apneic patients did Read More

Slow-Wave Activity in Sleep Apnea Patients Before and After Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Treatment: NREM

The distributions of SWA for three sleep cycles for control subjects vs untreated SAS patients and for treated vs untreated patients are presented in Figure 2, top and bottom, respectively. There was no interaction effect between group (control subjects and Read More

Slow-Wave Activity in Sleep Apnea Patients Before and After Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Treatment: Statistical Analyses

Between-group differences in sleep variables and in total SWA were assessed by either Mann-Whitney U tests (control subjects vs SAS patients) or Wilcoxon matched-pair tests (treated vs untreated SAS patients). A two-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) with one independent and Read More

Slow-Wave Activity in Sleep Apnea Patients Before and After Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Treatment: MSLT

The MSLT consists of five opportunities to nap administered at 10:00 am, 12:00 noon, 2:00 pm, 4:00 pm, and 6:00 pm.18 As for PSG, sleep onset in the modified MSLT was defined as three consecutive epochs (1 min) of stage Read More

Slow-Wave Activity in Sleep Apnea Patients Before and After Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Treatment: Materials and Methods

Subjects Ten men (mean age, 42.7 ± 1.87 years; age range, 36 to 57 years; mean body mass index [BMI], 37.54 ± 1.98 kg/m2) with a diagnosis of severe SAS who showed a good clinical and polysomnography (PSG) response to Read More

Slow-Wave Activity in Sleep Apnea Patients Before and After Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Treatment

Sleep apnea syndrome (SAS) is a chronic illness characterized by recurrent apneas and hypopneas during sleep, resulting in repetitive arousals and disruption of normal sleep architecture. Several studies have shown a strong deprivation of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep and Read More

The current status of autotitrating continuous positive airway pressure systems in the management of obstructive sleep apnea: DISCUSSION (3)

Long-term CPAP compliance is related to the first-night experience with this treatment modality. The patients’ initial experiences with CPAP treatment may be a crucial factor in determining their subsequent regular use of CPAP, and any changes in the method of Read More

The current status of autotitrating continuous positive airway pressure systems in the management of obstructive sleep apnea: DISCUSSION (2)

APAP is promising for use in titration, with a number of comparative studies showing that treatment pressures estimated using this approach were either similar to or lower than those derived using manual titration; there were no adverse physiological effects. These Read More

The current status of autotitrating continuous positive airway pressure systems in the management of obstructive sleep apnea: DISCUSSION (1)

APAP devices provide a further option in the management of OSA. Considering the present review, it appears that there is potential for the use of this technology; however, its effectiveness in routine health care has not yet been established. The Read More

The current status of autotitrating continuous positive airway pressure systems in the management of obstructive sleep apnea: RESULTS (6)

For the present analysis, the operating costs associated with the care of OSA were considered, including those for the diagnosis of the condition, titration for individuals who choose treatment with a positive airway pressure machine and the purchase price of Read More
