BACKGROUND It is unknown to what extent therapeutic continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) levels obtained by various methods for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) differ. This study aimed to explore the relationships among pressures titrated by an automatic CPAP (APAP) device and those calculated using different predictive equations, and to compare different ranges of calculated pressures with pressure values titrated by APAP. METHODS In 140 OSAS patients, the 95th… CONTINUE READING
