OSA affects millions of people worldwide (approximately 20 million in the United States, alone), its prevalence being comparable to that of asthma or diabetes. However, awareness is low with only around 5% of sufferers being diagnosed and treated. Along with an increasing understanding of morbidity caused by SDB, this discrepancy has created one of the fastest growing segments of respiratory industry. There is also now a recognized association between SDB and common diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, stroke, and cardiac disease.
According to published studies, patient compliance to CPAP therapy is around 40% in the United States. Patients most commonly terminate therapy within the first month, and recent developments suggest that the first week of therapy is the crucial period. The most common reasons for noncompliance are poor mask fit and nasal symptoms, both of which are easily resolved.
