The association of age with continuous positive airway pressure ventilation acceptance in an outpatient cohort of patients with obstructive sleep apnea
Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine — Han M, Wee R, Shadbolt B, et al. | July 21, 2021
Researchers explored the connection between age and continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) acceptance in a consecutive series of patients with obstructive sleep apnea being managed in a physician-led outpatient CPAP acclimatization program in Canberra, Australia. They conducted a retrospective consecutive case series analysis of registry data from patients who attended the Canberra Hospital PAP Acclimatization Clinic between 2011 and 2019. The ANOVA and Chi-square tests were used to determine the relationship between patient age, CPAP acceptance, and other clinical features. One thousand seventy-five consecutive CPAP trials amongst 1,043 patients were eligible for inclusion. Lower CPAP acceptance is associated with older age. The factors that contribute to this association are unknown and warrant further investigation.
