The benefits of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy in patients with the sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome (SAHS) are poorly documented and patients use CPAP less than physicians recommend. To establish patients' perceptions of benefit from CPAP and to identify determinants of CPAP use, 204 CPAP users completed a questionnaire relating to use of CPAP therapy, sleepiness, and road traffic incident rate before and after CPAP, perceived change in daytime function and nocturnal symptoms… 
Improving CPAP use by patients with the sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome (SAHS).
TLDR
A structured, multidisciplinary, cost-efficient model is suggested, containing educational, behavioural and technological components as basic support, and with high-expertise cognitive-behavioural intervention in more difficult cases of low CPAP use.
Effect of CPAP therapy on daytime function in patients with mild sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome.
TLDR
The results of this study provide evidence for improvements in symptoms and daytime function for patients with mild SAHS treated with CPAP.
Determinants of continuous positive airway pressure compliance in a group of Greek patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
Age, gender and minimum saturation during sleep were related to better compliance whereas higher neck circumference and preexisting nasal problems were the parameters related to a worse adherence to treatment.
A French survey of 3,225 patients treated with CPAP for obstructive sleep apnoea: benefits, tolerance, compliance and quality of life.
TLDR
Patients who continued continuous positive airway pressure treatment for more than 6 months felt a great improvement in their symptoms, were satisfied with the treatment and had a relatively good perception of their health.
Self-efficacy contributes to individual differences in subjective improvements using CPAP
TLDR
Although CPAP use predicted daily improvements in affect and sleepiness for the majority of patients, patients with lower AHI, greater treatment self-efficacy, and moderate outcome expectancies reported stronger daily benefits from CPAP.
The impact of changing people with sleep apnea using CPAP less than 4 h per night to a Bi-level device.
TLDR
Routine intervention with Bi-level PAP in this group of sub-optimally compliant individuals was not very effective in improving PAP usage; there is however a subgroup of patients who complains of difficulty with exhalation; where favorable trends towards improved compliance were observed on Bi- level PAP.
Controlled, prospective trial of psychosocial function before and after continuous positive airway pressure therapy
TLDR
Investigating psychosocial function before and after continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy established the determinants and consequences of objective CPAP use, and produced statistically and clinically significant Psychosocial improvements, some of large magnitude, in psychossocial function.
Spousal involvement in CPAP adherence among patients with obstructive sleep apnea
TLDR
The majority of findings demonstrated increased positive wife involvement as a reaction to adherence and problems with CPAP, suggesting support and collaborative interventions have the potential to improve CPAP adherence and response to CPAP-related problems, particularly in patients with high disease severity.
Predictive factors of quality-of-life improvement and continuous positive airway pressure use in patients with sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome: study at 1 year.
TLDR
Patients with untreated sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome had a lower QoL, which improved to the level of the general population after 3 months of CPAP therapy and persisted at 1 year of treatment with CPAP.
Adherence to Continuous Positive Airway Pressure in Existing Users: Self-Efficacy Enhances the Association between Continuous Positive Airway Pressure and Adherence.
TLDR
Self-efficacy beliefs appear to be a prime target for focused interventions aimed at improving CPAP adherence among those individuals with higher pressure prescriptions, and may moderate the relationship between CPAP pressure and adherence.

Objective measurement of patterns of nasal CPAP use by patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
Although the majority (60%) of patients claimed to use CPAP nightly, only 16 of 35 patients met criteria for regular use, defined by at least 4 h of CPAP administered on 70% of the days monitored, and these 16 patients had more years of education, and were more likely to work in professional occupations.
Self-reported vs measured compliance with nasal CPAP for obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
It is concluded that self-reports are unable to distinguish between compliant and noncompliant patients, as predominantly patients with poor compliance misestimated daily use time.
Effect of continuous positive airway pressure treatment on daytime function in sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome
TLDR
Objectively monitored CPAP use averaged only 3.4 (0.4) hours per night, but this study provides evidence of improved cognitive performance even at this low level of CPAP compliance.
Compliance with CPAP therapy in patients with the sleep apnoea/hypopnoea syndrome.
TLDR
Patients with sleep apnoea/hypopnoeA syndrome used CPAP for less than five hours/night on average with no correlation between severity of sleep ap noea / hypopNoea syndrome and CPAP usage, and it is recommended that CPAP run time should be regularly recorded in all patients receiving CPAP therapy.
Effects of one night without nasal CPAP treatment on sleep and sleepiness in patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
As expected, CPAP eliminated apneas and hypopneas, and following the on CPAP night, there were statistically significant improvements in objective measures of sleepiness (MSLT and PVT) and subjective measures ofSleepiness and fatigue also showed improvement.
Treatment of obstructive sleep apnea with nasal continuous positive airway pressure. Patient compliance, perception of benefits, and side effects.
TLDR
The results showed that 105 patients continued to use CPAP at a mean follow-up time of 17 +/- 11 months, some for as long as 6 yr, and the majority of patients perceived CPAP as an effective treatment of the disorder, while 5% were unsure, and 14% believed that CPAP was ineffective, despite the resolution of sleep apnea on polysomnography.
Nasal CPAP: an objective evaluation of patient compliance.
TLDR
The objective was to document NCPAP compliance and the percentage of time that the effective pressure shown to eliminate 95% of the obstructive apneas and hypopneas was maintained.
Predictive factors of long-term compliance with nasal continuous positive airway pressure treatment in sleep apnea syndrome.
TLDR
The long-term acceptability of treatment with nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) was studied prospectively in 44 patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and confirmed the importance of supervision of the time counter, as well as regular encouragement of patients to use the treatment as long as possible each night, to extract a maximum benefit from treatment by nasal CPAP.
Long-term compliance with nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) in obstructive sleep apnea patients and nonapneic snorers.
TLDR
This study shows that CPAP is reasonably accepted by OSA patients as well as by nonapneic snorers.
A new method for measuring daytime sleepiness: the Epworth sleepiness scale.
The development and use of a new scale, the Epworth sleepiness scale (ESS), is described. This is a simple, self-administered questionnaire which is shown to provide a measurement of the subject's
