[Diagnosis and treatment of a case of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome with AutoSet]

Pneumologia. Apr-Jun 2001;50(2):101-5.
[Article in Romanian]


The author presents the case of a male patient with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome, in which the use of classic CPAP therapy after performing an uvulo-pharyngoplasty (UVPP) led to very good results. The pressure levels determined initially after a polysomnography with Apnoe Check were compared with the results of the measurements with another device, AutoSet, used for the first time in our country. This allowed the tapering of pressure levels for CPAP and also revealed other advantages of the device, reviewed here.
