Ongoing OSA therapy compliance

Patient initiation and ongoing sleep therapy compliance is everything


Long-term sustainable therapy starts with comfort and connectivity in every way. Keeping patients engaged – and your team one step ahead.


But there are a number of obstacles that threaten success:


  • 30%-40% of PAP therapy patients are estimated to be non-adherent in the first 90 days1
  • 25% of patients require an adjustment to prescription pressures in the first 90 days1
  • Patients often find it hard to maintain therapy when traveling
