Nasal-cpap treatment and compliance in sleep apnea patients with cerebral palsy.
No Nasal-cpap treatment in sleep apnea patients with cerebral palsy. Severity of sleep apnea in thrombolysis patients and in control patients. Thrombolysis reduces severity of sleep apnea.Sleep apnea is common among cerebral palsy patients.
No nasal-cpap in sleep apnea patients with cerebral palsy
In prospective study the investigators include all over 18 years old patients who came to emergency room for cerebral palsy.Exclusion criteria is not able to co-operate or need for intensive care unit.The investigators shall take 100 control patients who have cerebral palsy and no thrombolysis and 100 study patients who will have thrombolysis. The investigators do sleep registration during hospital staying within 2 days after patients have felt ill.Follow-up registration will be done after 6 months at home.
