not recruiting iconNOT RECRUITING


Primary Endpoints: •Comparison of difference in AHI at one-week in-lab polysomnography between "device on" and "device off" nights, controlling for sleep position (supine vs. non-supine) Secondary Endpoints: By polysomnography, reduction in: - AHI with device on vs. off at 3 months, controlling for sleep position - Oxygen desaturation index with device on vs. off - Arousal index with device on vs. off - Duration of snoring with device on vs. off - Epworth Sleepiness Scale Patient acceptance, in terms of: - Refusal rate at screening - Discontinuation rate during follow-up - Daily compliance rate - Device-related adverse events - Serious adverse events
