Please be advised that due to the high volume of submissions, the ANZCTR is currently experiencing delays in processing submissions from those outside of Australia and New Zealand. As the ANZCTR is funded by Australia and New Zealand, we must prioritise submissions from these countries first. International submissions should allow additional time for registration. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 0 0
AHI - The apnea hypopnea index (AHI) is a measure of sleep disordered breathing. It will be measured and compared between the two groups. The units are number of events per hour.
Timepoint [1] 0 0
one post study night (once PSG is scored)

Eligibility
Key inclusion criteria
- Aged =18 years with mild-to-severe OSA (Apnea Hypopnea Index equal to or greater than
5 per hour).
Minimum age
18 Years
Maximum age
No limit
Gender
Both males and females
Can healthy volunteers participate?
No
Key exclusion criteria
- Any medical condition which contraindicates (see Appendix A) the use of CPAP or
AutoCPAP.

- Unstable cardiovascular disease (untreated or resistant hypertension acceptable).

- Unstable psychiatric disease.

- Other significant sleep disorder.

- Inability to tolerate CPAP due to nasal obstruction or claustrophobia, as determined
by the investigation investigator.

- Any known factor or disease that might interfere with treatment compliance,
investigation conduct or interpretation of the results such as psychiatric disease,
history of non compliance to medical regimens, or unwillingness to comply with
investigational requirements.

- Participation in another clinical trial in the previous month.

- Less than 2 hours recorded sleep in either arm

Summary
Brief summary
This single-blind randomised crossover trial aims to compare the efficacy of a novel
Auto-CPAP algorithm (SPAP) to conventional CPAP. Up to 50 patients will be recruited from an
OSA population, aged over 18.
