Oral Appliance Therapy / CPAP Comparison Diagram

This diagram comparing CPAP and Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT) was published in Current Opinion in Pulmonary Medicine (2009) in an article titled “Oral appliance treatment of obstructive sleep apnea: an update” by Andrew S.L. Chana and Peter A. Cistulli. (It can be found on page 594).

Despite the better PSG results, CPAP ranks lower on the convenience, patient/partner acceptance, tolerance and adherence elements.

The dotted CPAP line has been highlighted in order to create a stronger visual contrast.
