In children, the usual indications for continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) are residual OSA after adenotonsillectomy and/or persistent OSA due to obesity. Data concerning adherence (hours/night) following ambulatory CPAP initiation are scarce.

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the first line therapy for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) but its effectiveness requires high adherence. We aimed to assess the impacts of the spouse's/par...
The main objective of this study was to evaluate the role of sham continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) compared to conservative medical therapy (CMT) as a control arm in the Best Apnea Intervent...
Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment reduces blood pressure (BP) in obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and hypertensive patients, but there is a lack of data about the effects of CPAP on t...
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with oxidative stress that is involved in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular and metabolic complications. The concentrations of salivary markers of oxidativ...
Only a few studies have addressed strategies to improve continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) adherence in children with obstructive sleep apnea. The aim of our study was to assess the efficacy o...
This study aim to evaluate if the improvement of heart rate variability for the continuous positive airway pressure titration night can predict the short and long term continuous positive ...
We hypothesize that the nocturnal use of continuous positive airway pressure in adults and children with asthma will decrease airway reactivity.
Hypothesis: Computer controlled continuous positive airway pressure (autoCPAP) is equally effective in improving obstructive sleep apnea syndrome symptoms, breathing disturbances, objectiv...
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is associated with impaired stroke recovery. Treatment with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) may prevent this but is limited by poor adherence. In t...
Telemonitoring for Positive Airway Pressure (PAP) therapy might help to establish and maintain long-term therapy adherence and thus support the beneficial effects of PAP therapy on long-te...
