  • PurposeOral pressure therapy (OPT) has emerged as a novel technique to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in the past few years. Given this is a relatively new treatment approach, currently, little is known with respect to its clinical utility. The aim of this review was to explore the success rate of OPT when used to treat OSA.MethodsPubMed, MEDLINE, Scopus, Web of Science, and the Cochrane Library databases were searched for pertinent studies.ResultsThe OPT treatment success rates varied… CONTINUE READING
