Nursing Interventions Improve Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Adherence in Obstructive Sleep Apnea With Excessive Daytime Sleepiness: A Systematic Review



Nursing Interventions Improve Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Adherence in Obstructive Sleep Apnea With Excessive Daytime Sleepiness: A Systematic Review



Rehabilitation Nursing 2018:



The purpose of this systematic review was to summarize the effectiveness of interventions in the literature to improve adherence to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment in patients with excessive daytime sleepiness. In this review, we considered only randomized controlled trials that included interventions to improve CPAP adherence in adult obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients with high daytime sleepiness. Eight trials were included in this review. The types of interventions to improve adherence to CPAP can be grouped into educational, technological, pharmacological, and multidimensional interventions. Educational programs can increase CPAP adherence in OSA patients. As nurses are the main clinicians responsible for device use for patients, the therapeutic strategies to improve CPAP adherence are important in their clinical setting. Therefore, the nursing work related to the use of CPAP has a great impact on the quality of life and mortality of patients with OSA.This is an open-access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivatives License 4.0 (CCBY-NC-ND), where it is permissible to download and share the work provided it is properly cited.
