PURPOSE: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common form of sleep disordered breathing (SDB) and is highly prevalent in the US. First line therapy for OSA is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). Though proven to be an efficacious treatment, adherence to PAP therapy is an ongoing challenge for patients and healthcare providers. Patients who are undertreated risk having clinical complications as well as the potential of their therapy not being reimbursed. AirView is a cloud-based system, automatically receiving device data daily, allowing healthcare providers to manage patients with SDB. myAir is an online self-management program that syncs up with a patient’s PAP device and is designed to provide patients with personalized PAP therapy support. We conducted a retrospective, observational study to assess the impact of myAir on adherence to PAP treatment in patients with SDB. Adherence was evaluated for the first 90 days after PAP initiation, and adherence for patients who used myAir was compared to patients who did not use myAir
