Its added stability, better fit and greater comfort is expected to positively impact the patient's experience when using the DreamWear Nasal and Gel Pillows CPAP
Their study -- described as the largest of its kind and one of only a few to examine how CPAP
affects mood in heart patients -- was recently published in the journal EClinicalMedicine.
"Our findings provide further support for the broader beneficial effects of CPAP
in those with OSA, and especially those at high cardiovascular risk, where there is the potential for enhanced mood to improve long-term cardiovascular outcomes," the authors write.
"The technology for CPAP
has significantly improved in terms of comfort.
This retrospective quality improvement project included adult patients who have been diagnosed with OSA and were using the CPAP
machine and had completed clinic visits from January 2018 through September 2018 (n=100).
All had been using CPAP
successfully for over a year.
Significantly more patients who were treated with CPAP
experienced an improvement in their mRS score by at least 1 point, when assessed at both 6 and 12 months following entrance into the study.
In designing a device that fits a variety of CPAP
masks, the company took many different situations into account.

The effect of CPAP
treatment on spindle activity in OSA patients is, however, an open question.
Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP
) is defined as PEEP (positive end expiratory pressure) applied to a spontaneously breathing patient.
But continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP
) was used for only 3.3 hours per night by these patients and might have been "insufficient to provide the level of effect on cardiovascular outcomes that had been hypothesized," Doug McEvoy, MD, of the Adelaide (Australia) Institute for Sleep Health, Flinders University, reported at the annual congress of the European Society of Cardiology.
Contrary to previous studies, a new research has shown that using a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP
) machine to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may not reduce the patient's risk of developing coronary or cerebrovascular conditions.
After more than three decades from its first use, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP
) is still recognized as the gold standard treatment.
The most effective therapy for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP
