Condition obstructive sleep apnea
Treatment testing with a portable sleep apnea monitor .
Sponsor John H. Stroger Hospital
Start date April 2011
End date February 2015
Trial size 140 participants
Trial identifier NCT01424592, CCHHS IRB 11-027


Hypothesis: Portable sleep testing of hospitalized medical inpatients suspected of having OSA is accurate in determining the need for positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy when compared to outpatient laboratory-based polysomnography.

- Hospitalized medical inpatients referred for suspected OSA will be tested with a portable sleep apnea testing device during hospitalization.

- These patients will then undergo an outpatient laboratory-based attended polysomnography after hospital discharge.

- Results of the inpatient portable sleep apnea test will be compared to the outpatient laboratory-based polysomnography in terms of diagnostic accuracy.
