Treating patients who have obstructive sleep apnoea with nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) significantly improves their quality of life, according to US researchers. A study of 29 patients with the condition showed that eight weeks of the standard non-surgical treatment, in which patients must don a mask each night to force air through the nose and throat, improved vitality, social functioning and mental health. The study, which was carried out by researchers at Yale University, is published in the January edition of the journal Chest.
