SESSION TITLE: Research Investigations in Obstructive Sleep Apnea

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Slide

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 08:45 AM - 10:00 AM

PURPOSE: Anywhere from 11.9 to 90.0% of patients diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) have co-morbid obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). PTSD patients diagnosed with OSA are often non-compliant with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. They also have high rates of insomnia and wake after sleep onset, which may contribute to CPAP intolerance. Sensawake is a new, wake-sensing CPAP algorithm that lowers pressure when wake is detected. We compared CPAP with Sensawake to standard CPAP therapy to see if it would increase comfort, improve sleep quality and increase adherence in patients with OSA and co-morbid PTSD.
