Daytime CPAP titration studies with full polysomnography have been successfully performed in patients with severe sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (SAHS). The implementation of daytime studies in unselected SAHS patients could help to reduce the waiting lists for CPAP titrations. The main purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of conventional versus manual or automatic daytime CPAP titration in unselected patients with SAHS. Ninety-three consecutive patients with SAHS in whom CPAP… CONTINUE READING
