Question normal

Drs. Bianchi and Heckman are our lead moderators for the group of papers that presented data on the cardiovascular outcomes associated with continuous positive airway pressure in patients with obstructive sleep apnea. (Does CPAP Prevent Adverse CV Events in Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea?) Since these studies unexpectedly cast doubt on the effectiveness of CPAP to prevent adverse CV events, will this change our practice of offering this treatment to OSA patients? Drs. Bianchi and Heckman will continue this discussion thread with follow-up questions -- of course, all are welcome to ask, answer, respond, and follow-up.
