Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is the reference therapy for moderate and severe obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). However, CPAP adherence is dissatisfying. We analyzed influencing factors on CPAP adherence and we evaluated if a structured follow-up enhances its adherence.

This study explores the association between specific insomnia symptoms (sleep onset, sleep maintenance and early morning awakenings symptoms) and self-efficacy (perceived self-confidence in the abilit...
Adherence to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is crucial. Our aim was to identify protective and risk factors against the discontinuation of CP...
Because type 2 diabetes (T2D) is related to obesity, it is often associated with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS), although OSAS is also frequently diagnosed in patients with type 1 diabetes (...
Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) is caused by periodical upper airway occlusion during sleep resulting in snoring, episodes of apnea and excessive daytime sleepiness. OSAS is a risk factor for ...
Suboptimal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) adherence in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) clinical trials involving predominantly Caucasian males limits interpretability and generalizability. W...
Context: The obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), i.e., snoring with difficulty breathing during sleep, is common in children. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is t...
To assess whether the daily use of NeutraSal will prevent or reduce dry mouth in patients undergoing CPAP therapy for OSAS and improve CPAP compliance
Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) in children has high prevalence and severe complications, and its first line of treatment (adenotonsillectomy) has risk of complications. Even thoug...
Comparison of automatic CPAP with fixed CPAP in patients with OSAS
Objectives: Evaluate the effect of CPAP to reduce the progression of chronic kidney disease or CKD (the decline of glomerular filtration rate is ≥ 30%) in patients with early-stage renal...
Test for cell-mediated antitumor immunity and related serum blocking factors based on the finding that leukocytes from cancer patients, but not from controls, when mixed in vitro with antigenic extracts of tumors of the same histological type, undergo a diminution in their normal adherence to glass surfaces. Sera from tumor-bearing patients block the LAI reaction of their own leukocytes or those of other patients with the same type of tumor.
Study subjects in COHORT STUDIES whose outcomes are unknown e.g., because they could not or did not wish to attend follow-up visits.(from Dictionary of Epidemiology, 5th ed.)
Extent to which the patient follows prescribed treatment such as keeping APPOINTMENTS AND SCHEDULES and MEDICATION ADHERENCE for desired therapeutic outcome. It implies active responsibility shared by patient and health care providers.
Visits made by patients to health service providers' offices for diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up.
Compliance by health personnel or proxies with the stipulations of ADVANCE DIRECTIVES (or similar directives such as RESUSCITATION ORDERS) when patients are unable to direct their own care.
Sleep disorders disrupt sleep during the night, or cause sleepiness during the day, caused by physiological or psychological factors. The common ones include snoring and sleep apnea, insomnia, parasomnias, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, circa...
