To evaluate the effect and cost-utility of a combination therapy of SPT+MAD compared with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) in patients with moderate positional obstructive sleep apnea (POSA).
The SPT+MAD combination is more cost-effective and effective, in means of reduction of the apnea-hypopnea index (AHI), quality of life and compliance, compared with CPAP.
A multicenter randomized clinical trial (RCT) will be performed with a follow-up of 12 months per patient. Patients will be randomized for CPAP or the combination SPT and MRA. All outcomes will be measured at baseline, month 3, 6 and 12.
Patients diagnosed with moderate POSA according to polysomnography (PSG) results.
INTERVENTION / STANDARD INTERVENTION TO BE COMPARED TO:
The SPT trains POSA patients to sleep in non-supine positions, CPAP uses positive airway pressure to open the airway; MRA is an intra-oral prosthesis, which holds the mandible in a protrusive position, all to prevent effectively apneic events.
AHI, compliance, quality-adjusted life year (QALY), direct and indirect costs, cardiovascular parameters, incremental cost-effectiveness ratio (ICER)
SAMPLE SIZE / DATA ANALYSIS:
100 subjects in each treatment group, total of 200 patients.
COST-EFFECTIVENESS ANALYSIS / BUDGET IMPACT ANALYSIS:
The SPT is expected to improve the cost-effectiveness of overall treatment of POSA patients, and will save annually approximately 35-150 million euros.

Active Comparator: Combination therapy
Sleep Position Trainer + Mandibular Advancement device combination The SPT is a sensor that measures the sleeping position, and gives the user feedback about wrong positions with a soft vibration. A user is then able to react to the signal and turn into a non-supine position. To stimulate compliance, information is provided about nightly behaviour, implicating a learning pattern by viewing the data on a home computer.
MRA or oral appliances (OA) works by advancing the mandible and its attached soft tissue structures forward they aim to increase upper airway size.
Device: Sleep position trainer
Device: Mandibular advancement device
Other Name: MRA, MAD
Active Comparator: CPAPContinuous positive airway pressure
Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) functions as a pneumatic splint to maintain upper airway patency. Possible side effect can be related to the interface, pressure and negative social factors.
