The Evaluation of an Interface for the Treatment of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

2018-11-05 16:27:24 | BioPortfolio


This investigation is designed to evaluate the performance as well as the patients overall acceptance of the interface.


A minimum of 40 OSA participants who currently use CPAP will be recruited for the trial. Participant will be in the trial for three weeks- first week will be a collection of Positive Airway Pressure baseline data on participant's usual interface. The participant will then use the trial interface in-home for 2 weeks. There is also an option of a six month extension if the participant wish to continue on the trial interface.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Simultaneous and continuous monitoring of several parameters during sleep to study normal and abnormal sleep. The study includes monitoring of brain waves, to assess sleep stages, and other physiological variables such as breathing, eye movements, and blood oxygen levels which exhibit a disrupted pattern with sleep disturbances.

Periods of sleep manifested by changes in EEG activity and certain behavioral correlates; includes Stage 1: sleep onset, drowsy sleep; Stage 2: light sleep; Stages 3 and 4: delta sleep, light sleep, deep sleep, telencephalic sleep.

Dyssomnias (i.e., insomnias or hypersomnias) associated with dysfunction of internal sleep mechanisms or secondary to a sleep-related medical disorder (e.g., sleep apnea, post-traumatic sleep disorders, etc.). (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p187)

Movements or behaviors associated with sleep, sleep stages, or partial arousals from sleep that may impair sleep maintenance. Parasomnias are generally divided into four groups: arousal disorders, sleep-wake transition disorders, parasomnias of REM sleep, and nonspecific parasomnias. (From Thorpy, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, p191)

Rough, noisy breathing during sleep, due to vibration of the uvula and soft palate.
