The aim of this study to evaluate the efficacy of a home-based programme on clinical response, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) compliance and cost in a population of high pre-test probability of suffering obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS). Patients were randomised into the following three groups. Group A: home respiratory polygraphy (RP)(More)
BACKGROUND We hypothesized that obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) can predispose individuals to lower airway infections and community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) due to upper airway microaspiration. This study evaluated the association between OSA and CAP. METHODS We performed a case-control study that included 82 patients with CAP and 41 patients with other(More)

We report the case of a patient with chronic renal failure and primary hyperparathyroidism who developed nonhypercapnic central sleep apnea syndrome (CSAS), which was multifactorial in origin and attributed to metabolic factors. Given an inadequate response to oxygen therapy and continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) revealed by several polygraph(More)
