Efficacité à long terme de la pression positive continue sur la symptomatologie et les troubles respiratoires dans le syndrome d'apnées obstructives du sommeil

Abstract : The aim of this retrospective study was to assess the effectiveness of theCPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) on symptoms and respiratoryevents, sevaral years after the beginning of this treatment in 132 consecutivesobstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) patients who had CPAP sincemore than four years. We showed that the level of needed pressure aregetting high and that CPAP is effective in correcting symptoms andrespiratory events in OSAS, several years after the beginning of thetreatment. The aim of the second part of the study was to study the effects ofCPAP on blood gases and spirometrics values. We have confirmed that aproportion of patients have a respiratory hypercapnic or not insufficiencywitch is increased by CPAP. Spirometrics are not modified by CPAP.Mecanisms of this respiratory insufflciency in OSAS patients and hercorrection by CPAP are unclear.
