This study is designed to determine the effectiveness of two different CPAP devices. One a standard CPAP which has the ability to store comprehensive compliance and efficacy data and the second a auto adjusting CPAP which uses the energy spectrum analysis of flow signals to automatically adjust CPAP pressure and improve sleep variables.
All patients with suspected obstructive sleep apnea presenting at the Auckland Hospital Sleep Laboratory and referred for either a split-night or full night diagnostic study, will be offered participation in the study and will be recruited. From these patients, a total of 20 patients that are diagnosed with clinical obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, based on diagnostic polysomnography, will undergo titration with the HC254 Auto CPAP. An additional 20 patients will undergo titration with the HC244 CPAP.
The sleep physiologist evaluating the patient clinically will approach patients for participation in this study during their sleep laboratory visit. Consenting patients will undergo either an initial full night diagnostic polysomnography or a split night study as determined by the physician based on clinical requirements. Patients diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea (AHI > 15/hr) during this diagnostic component will then undergo one of the following:
- Treatment with the HC254 Auto CPAP during the second half of the study.
- Treatment with the HC244 CPAP during the second half of the study.
The sleep physiologist will then determine final CPAP prescriptions for all patients based on the patient's response to CPAP therapy.
5 subjects who have completed the HC254 arm of the study will be brought back to the sleep lab for an additional PSG or partial PSG while on CPAP pressure set to 90th percentile pressure determined on the diagnostic night.

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...
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)
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)
HYPOVENTILATION syndrome in very obese persons with excessive ADIPOSE TISSUE around the ABDOMEN and DIAPHRAGM. It is characterized by diminished to absent ventilatory chemoresponsiveness; chronic HYPOXIA; HYPERCAPNIA; POLYCYTHEMIA; and long periods of sleep during day and night (HYPERSOMNOLENCE). It is a condition often related to OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA but can occur separately.
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...
