Digital health technologies are gaining increased recognition as having the potential to improve adherence to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. This retrospective analysis found that 83.9% of brand new CPAP users who received standard care and who used the ResMed myAir self-management application, which incorporates empiricallytested behavioural science strategies, achieved Medicare adherence in 90 days and 75.4% achieved adherence in 30 days. The median number of days to…

Improving Adherence to PAP Therapy: an Update

Recent trends suggest a shift towards developing more patient-centered programs to support PAP adherence, and Advancements in telemedicine and interactive mobile health technologies represent the most promising area of growth for P AP adherence interventions.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Adherence to Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Treatment: Let’s Talk about Partners!

To increase CPAP adherence, a trained nurse could represent a reference figure to technically and emotionally support couples during the adaptation period and in the long term, resulting in ameliorating their overall quality of life.

The role of telemedicine in obstructive sleep apnea management

There is a pressing need to develop new cost-effective strategies, particularly those related to OSA treatment, from measures such as lifestyle changes to CPAP use and the use of telemedicine, specially focused on the first days or weeks of treatment.

Exploring the role of Design in the context of Medical Device Innovation

A framework of Medical Device Design Innovation is proposed to explore the role of design in medical device innovation through two medical device case studies and suggests a way to navigate the nuances and complexities of the medical device industry in order to put the patient first while ensuring commercial viability.

Becoming the Super Turker:Increasing Wages via a Strategy from High Earning Workers

This paper explores how novice workers can improve their earnings by following the transparency criteria of Super Turkers, i.e., crowd workers who earn higher salaries on Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk), and highlights that tool development to support crowd workers should be paired with educational opportunities that teach workers how to effectively use the tools.

Becoming the Super Turker: Increasing Wages via a Strategy from High Earning Workers

This paper explores how novice workers can improve their earnings by following the transparency criteria of Super Turkers, i.e., crowd workers who earn higher salaries on Amazon Mechanical Turk (MTurk), and finds that novices who utilized this Super Turker criteria earned better wages than other novice.

Early CPAP use identifies subsequent adherence to CPAP therapy.

Long-term adherence to CPAP therapy can be predicted as early as 3 days following CPAP initiation, and it is demonstrated that younger age and African-American race are independently associated with lower CPAP adherence.

Encouraging CPAP adherence: it is everyone's job.

It is concluded that improvement in patient adherence to CPAP therapy requires a multi-layered approach, using combined technological, behavioral, and adverse-effect interventions.

Compliance with nasal CPAP can be improved by simple interventions.

It is concluded that simple, inexpensive efforts to improve compliance with CPAP can be effective, especially when applied at the start of CPAP treatment, but optimal intervention may vary with certain patient characteristics.

Compliance in sleep apnoea therapy: influence of home care support and pressure mode

Intensive support after continuous positive airway pressure initiation, rather than the application of autoadjusting-continuous positiveAirway pressure, increased therapy adherence and retention rate was higher with CPAP.

Improved adherence to CPAP by telemetric support in newly diagnosed OSAS patients

A telemetric support for the first month of PAP was technically feasible and increased PAP adherence, and to determine the direct effects of telemedicine on medium and long-term PAP use, a randomised prospective study is necessary.

Educational, supportive and behavioural interventions to improve usage of continuous positive airway pressure machines for adults with obstructive sleep apnoea.

There is some evidence that a supportive intervention which encourages people to continue to use their CPAP machines leads to greater levels of CPAP machine usage than control, although the variation across the studies introduces some uncertainty over how consistent this effect is.

Intensive versus standard follow-up to improve continuous positive airway pressure compliance

Patients who received intensive CPAP support had significantly better ESS, BDI and SF-36 scores, and lower cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, suggesting that an intensive programme could be worthwhile.

The impact of a telemedicine monitoring system on positive airway pressure adherence in patients with obstructive sleep apnea: a randomized controlled trial.

PAP adherence can be improved with the use of a web-based telemedicine system at the initiation of treatment, and significant independent predictors of adherence included age, baseline Epworth Sleepiness Scale score, and use of telemedics.

Is more NCPAP better?

NCPAP is clearly effective in relieving the sleepiness of OSA compared to a control group identical in every way, except for receiving a nasal pressure inadequate to control the OSA.
