Prospective Trial of CPAP in Community-Dwelling Adults with Down Syndrome and Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome

Elizabeth A Hill, Donna M Fairley, Linda J Williams, Goffredina Spanò, Sally-Ann Cooper, Renata L Riha
2020 Brain Sciences  
Measurements of sleepiness, behaviour, cognitive function and general health were undertaken; the primary outcome was a change in the pictorial Epworth Sleepiness Scale (pESS) score.  ...  Use of CPAP in adults with DS and OSA led to a number of significant, sustained improvements in sleepiness and behavioural/emotional outcomes at 12 months.  ...  We acknowledge the work of colleagues and research associates within the Sleep Research Unit who assisted with questionnaire preparation and data entry.  ...
