A study in the Feb. 15 issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine found a significant independent association between depression and poor treatment adherence during an average of six nights of home-based autotitrating positive airway pressure (APAP) titration. According to the authors, depression may be a potential target for clinicians aiming to enhance adherence to APAP therapy among patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
