Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The breathing platform will use a continuous positive air pressure (CPAP) device controlled by an app. Device and mobile phone (to run app) will be provided to participants by investigators on day 1 of the study. The device settings will include a pressure delivery between 4 and 20 cmH2O. Treatment session will involve starting their CPAP (with the 'on' button) and using the app for breathing instructions. Intended frequency of intervention involves 10-30 mins of therapy per day, for 4 days. Feedback & compliance will be logged in interview at day 5.
Intervention code [1] 301001 0
Treatment: Devices
Comparator / control treatment
The control treatment will involve exactly the same parameters as the intervention, just without assistance from the investigational device (with mobile phone app only). Treatment will involve the same duration, location and procedure just without the assistance of the device. Feedback and compliance will still be assessed in an interview after the completion of the study.
