Effect of CPAP Treatment in Elderly: Randomized Clinical Trial

2014-07-23 22:00:46 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Rationale: Almost all the information the investigators have about the effect of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) comes from randomized clinical trials including only middle-aged patients. Little is know, however, about the effect of CPAP in elderly people with OSA. Objective: To assess the effect of CPAP treatment in elderly patients with severe OSA on clinical, quality-of-life and neurocognitive spheres. Methods and Measurements: Open-label, randomized, multicenter clinical trial of parallel groups with blinded end-point design conducted in 12 Spanish teaching hospitals on a consecutive clinical cohort of elderly (≥ 70 years) patients with confirmed severe OSA (IAH≥ 30) receiving CPAP or no therapy while maintaining their usual control for three months. CPAP titration was performed by an auto CPAP device. A good adherence was set as at least 4 hours/day of CPAP use. Primary endpoint was the measurement of quality of life by the Quebec Sleep questionnaire, which includes diurnal and nocturnal symptoms, hypersomnolence, and social and emotional dimensions. Secondary endpoints include different sleep-related symptoms, presence of anxiety or depression, office blood pressure figures and some neurocognitive tests. Patients were invited to a clinical visit on three occasions to quantify the adherence to CPAP. Intention-to-treat analysis was performed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition associated with multiple episodes of sleep apnea which are distinguished from obstructive sleep apnea (SLEEP APNEA, OBSTRUCTIVE) by the complete cessation of efforts to breathe. This disorder is associated with dysfunction of central nervous system centers that regulate respiration. This condition may be idiopathic (primary) or associated with lower brain stem lesions; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (LUNG DISEASES, OBSTRUCTIVE); HEART FAILURE, CONGESTIVE; medication effect; and other conditions. Sleep maintenance is impaired, resulting in daytime hypersomnolence. Primary central sleep apnea is frequently associated with obstructive sleep apnea. When both forms are present the condition is referred to as mixed sleep apnea (see SLEEP APNEA SYNDROMES). (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p395; Neurol Clin 1996;14(3):611-28)

Disorders characterized by multiple cessations of respirations during sleep that induce partial arousals and interfere with the maintenance of sleep. Sleep apnea syndromes are divided into central (see SLEEP APNEA, CENTRAL), obstructive (see SLEEP APNEA, OBSTRUCTIVE), and mixed central-obstructive types.

A disorder characterized by recurrent apneas during sleep despite persistent respiratory efforts. It is due to upper airway obstruction. The respiratory pauses may induce HYPERCAPNIA or HYPOXIA. Cardiac arrhythmias and elevation of systemic and pulmonary arterial pressures may occur. Frequent partial arousals occur throughout sleep, resulting in relative SLEEP DEPRIVATION and daytime tiredness. Associated conditions include OBESITY; ACROMEGALY; MYXEDEMA; micrognathia; MYOTONIC DYSTROPHY; adenotonsilar dystrophy; and NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p395)

A technique of respiratory therapy, in either spontaneously breathing or mechanically ventilated patients, in which airway pressure is maintained above atmospheric pressure throughout the respiratory cycle by pressurization of the ventilatory circuit. (On-Line Medical Dictionary [Internet]. Newcastle upon Tyne(UK): The University Dept. of Medical Oncology: The CancerWEB Project; c1997-2003 [cited 2003 Apr 17]. Available from: http://cancerweb.ncl.ac.uk/omd/)

Posterior displacement of the TONGUE toward the PHARYNX. It is often a feature in syndromes such as in PIERRE ROBIN SYNDROME and DOWN SYNDROME and associated with AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION during sleep (OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEAS).
