Automatic CPAP (auto-CPAP) is engineered to automatically provide a positive pressure to the upper airway in response to apnea, hypopnea, airflow limitation, or snoring in patients with the sleep apnea/ hypopnea syndrome (SAHS). Self-adjusted CPAP has theoretical advantages over traditional fixed CPAP. We investigated the value of auto-CPAP regulation in 20 patients with SAHS in order to predict future fixed-level CPAP needs, as an alternative method to conventional polysomnographically (PSG… CONTINUE READING
