Partial failure of CPAP treatment for sleep apnoea: Analysis of the French national sleep database

Publié par Sébastien Bailly, en 2020 - Respirology

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the first-line therapy for obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). Residual apnoea and/or hypopnoea events, that is an apnoea-hypopnoea index (AHI) > 5, during CPAP contribute to treatment drop-out. The clinical scenarios triggering residual events during CPAP use are poorly described. Underlying co-morbidities, especially cardiovascular diseases, lifestyle factors, OSA characteristics at diagnosis and type of mask have been suggested as potential contributors.
