STUDY OBJECTIVES Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has been associated with hypertension, which is one of the intermediary mechanisms leading to increased cardiovascular morbidity. This study aimed at evaluating the effects of a combination of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) and telemedicine support on blood pressure (BP) reduction in high cardiovascular risk OSA patients. DESIGN A multi-center randomized controlled trial that compared standard CPAP care and CPAP care and a… CONTINUE READING
