Researchers from the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK, Canada, compared sleepiness, sleep quality, quality of life, blood pressure, and CPAP adherence in 102 patients who would receive treatment either at home or in labs.

After 4 weeks, there was no significant difference between the two groups in regard to any sleep measures or CPAP compliance.

Researchers conclude that select subjects with suspected OSA could be diagnosed and treated at home.
