Educational video to improve CPAP use in patients with OSA at risk for poor adherence

To the best of our knowledge, this study is the first randomised controlled trial to assess the impact of an educational video on CPAP adherence in a population of patients at increased risk for poor CPAP adherence. We demonstrated that compared with

usual care, a brief video education prior to the sleep study does not lead to improved outcomes. Furthermore, a phone conversation after the sleep study between the patient and the sleep physician had no impact on any of the outcomes. Our study

shows that a simple intervention such as our short educational video is not sufficient to improve a complex behaviour such as CPAP adherence, particularly in a patient population at increased risk for CPAP non-adherence.
