|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Obstructive Sleep Apnea||Device: AutoCPAP Device: FixCPAP||Not Applicable|
A prospective, randomized crossover cohort. Study subjects consisted of patients newly diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) confirmed with sleep study. All are CPAP naïve.
Arm 1: auto CPAP sleep study then auto CPAP for 2 months Arm 2: fixed CPAP titration then fixed CPAP for 2 months
Then switch over to the other arm
Trial end after 4 months, compliance and other parameters would be compared between two arms as described in the endpoint session.
