Abstract [en]

AIM OF THE STUDY: To assess a simplified model for follow-up in patients undergoing CPAP-treatment for obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome.

PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 200 patients in stable condition were randomised to annual follow-up visits either by a specialist nurse (intervention) or physician-led visits including oximetry (control). Patients were followed for two years and assessed for the following outcomes: global satisfaction, quality of life, medical events, and resource utilisation.

RESULTS: The overall experience of CPAP treatment was rated as excellent or good by 99% in each group. Global satisfaction was high in both groups, and there were no clinically significant differences between the groups. Quality of life did not differ between the groups. No serious medical events related to OSAS occurred during the study period. Extra physician consultations occurred rarely, and were managed within the limits of the follow-up visits.

CONCLUSION: For stable patients undergoing CPAP treatment for obstructive sleep apnoea, regular follow-up visits by a specialist nurse can optimise the use of health care resources while retaining high patient satisfaction, without increasing medical risks.
