MyPAP Trainer: A Novel Device to Increase User Awareness and Remediation of Positive Airway Pressure Leak

 

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is a public health concern. Unfortunately, the primary means of treatment, Positive Airway Pressure (PAP) therapy, is met with high rates of poor adherence in part attributed to side effects. Air flow leak (leak), one of the most frequent side effects that has not been addressed in treatment programs, directly impacts the effectiveness of PAP therapy and continued use. The research team will develop a novel universal device that will measure leak and provide real-time feedback to users in order to increase adherence.
