Is AutoPAP Better Than CPAP?

AutoPAP (APAP) was initially designed to deliver optimized pressure throughout the night.  This is based on the premise that the level of pressure required to treat OSA varies throughout the night, depending on a subject's sleep stage and body position.  It also allows compensation for some of the adverse effects of CPAP therapy, namely mask discomfort, leaks and arophagia.  These patients also complain of waking up early in the morning due to intolerable pressure.  Studies have shown that sleep quality was better after APAP application and raised the patient's compliance.  People who use APAP use the device longer and are more likely to continue treatment.  Therefore, while CPAP is proven effective therapy for OSA, APAP gives you a more custom therapeutic experience and may have better treatment outcomes.
