Active Comparator: therapeutic CPAP Treatment (6 weeks)"
The intervention is nightly therapeutic CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) treatment for 6 weeks. Patients will use CPAP every night for the full duration of the study, i.e., 6 weeks
Device: Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP)
therapeutic Continuous positive airway pressure (tCPAP) nightly for 6 weeks
Placebo Comparator: Sham CPAP/therapetuic CPAP (6 weeks)"
The intervention is placebo CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) nightly for 3 weeks followed by therapeutic CPAP treatment nightly for 3 weeks.
Patients will use a sham CPAP (no real pressure) for 3 weeks and then will be switched to real CPAP for 3 weeks.
Device: Placebo CPAP
Ineffective Continuous positive airway pressure (pCPAP) for 3 weeks followed by therapeutic CPAP for 3 weeks
- Tests to Determine the Apnea-hypopnea Index (Number of Apneas and Hypopneas Per Hour of Sleep) [ Time Frame: six weeks ]Overnight sleep studies were done to determine the effect of treatment on the apnea-hypopnea index (number of apneas and hypopneas per hour of sleep)
- Sleep Stages; %Time Spent at SaO2<90%; [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]Overnight sleep studies were done to examine the effect of CPAP treatment on sleep stages and on %time spent at Sa)2<90%.
