Home Positive Airway Pressure


Randomized, multicenter clinical trial comparing home-based and in-laboratory polysomnography (PSG) for diagnosis and titration


Adult patients referred to a sleep center with a high pretest probability of moderate to severe OSA


2008-2010, subjects had baseline and two follow-up visits


American Sleep Medicine Foundation


The Home Positive Airway Pressure (HomePAP) study was a multisite, nonblinded, randomized controlled trial that enrolled 373 patients at seven American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM)-accredited academic sleep centers with a high pretest probability of moderate to severe OSA (based on a clinical algorithm). Eligible subjects were evaluated in clinic and randomized to one of two management pathways: 1) laboratory-based and 2) home-based. All subjects with an AHI ≥ 15 who underwent a successful CPAP titration study were offered CPAP therapy. Subjects were re-evaluated in clinic after 1- and 3-month follow-up periods.
