Adaptive servo-ventilation machines improve sleep quality outcomes in people with complex insomnia

Takeaway

  • Adaptive servo-ventilation (ASV) machines are more effective than continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) for improving sleep quality outcomes in people with complex insomnia.

Why this matters

  • People with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and complex insomnia who use CPAP machines may have worsening insomnia from the CPAP machine.
  • However, advanced positive airway pressure machines with ASV may improve clinical sleep quality outcomes in people with complex insomnia.
