AHRQ: Studies Fail to Show Long-Term Benefit for CPAP - MedPage Today

According to this article, AHRQ: Studies Fail to Show Long-Term Benefit for CPAP -  Sleep apnea specialists dumbfounded at critique of "gold standard" treatment:

"The big fear that I have, and many of my colleagues have, is that the way this report is worded could easily be misinterpreted as saying that prescribing CPAP doesn't improve these (long-term) outcomes, so we shouldn't be paying for it," said David Rapoport, MD, who directs the sleep medicine research program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City.

He said CPAP is widely recognized as the most effective treatment for improving OSA symptoms, such as snoring and daytime sleepiness.

"Nothing else even comes close," he said. "CPAP s really a remarkable treatment for addressing the breathing disorder associated with obstructive sleep apnea. But it has to be used, and compliance remains a big issue."

HME Providers See Spike In Demand For Home Oxygen Therapy

According to the article:

"As COVID-19 cases spike across the country, HME providers are seeing a spike in demand for home oxygen therapy, so much so that they’re worrying about their supply of concentrators."

 "“We’re really struggling with the volume because of the delays in shipping from manufacturers,” said Irene Magee, vice president and director of Green Island, N.Y.-based Northeast Home Medical Equipment.  

Providers are also juggling a wide range of patient therapy needs for a disease with a lot of unknowns. Some patients only need oxygen for a day or two, while others are longer term or have higher-flow needs."
