    The article discusses a research undertaken to understand the effect of acetazolamide and autoadjusted continuous positive airway pressure (autoCPAP) therapy on breathing disturbances encountered by obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) syndrome patients at altitude. It reports that the cohort study...

    Background: Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the elective treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. The therapeutic level of CPAP is generally established by manual titration or an auto CPAP device, but an alternative way involves the use of predictive formulas. The aim of the present...

    Purpose: Autotitrating continuous positive airway pressure (auto-CPAP) devices not only titrate CPAP pressures but also measure residual respiratory events. The aim of the present study was to determine the accuracy of auto-CPAP-derived residual apnea-hypopnea index (AHI). Methods: We studied...
