Conclusions

OSA is a markedly prevalent disease affecting a large percentage of the general population. Despite the limitations of CPAP, it is wholly effective in treating OSA when used and tolerated with few side effects and thus, has become the mainstay of treatment. Use of CPAP, however, may pose many challenges for both the clinician and the patient. When therapy is implemented, there are many important considerations for both parties to ensure a successful outcome. Certain individuals and situations require special care to ensure optimal therapy and compliance. Ultimately, treatment with PAP therapy can provide tremendous benefits for patients with OSA and a comprehensive approach by clinicians as well as longitudinal support are critical pieces of the treatment plan.
