The association of age with continuous positive airway pressure ventilation acceptance in an outpatient cohort of patients with obstructive sleep apnea

Our findings demonstrate lower rates of CPAP acceptance among older patients aged > 75 years. To date, the few observational studies examining the effect of age on CPAP acceptance have reported conflicting results. Rezaie et al examined predictors of CPAP acceptance among a cohort of patients from Iran and found that age was not associated with CPAP acceptance. Simon-Tuval et al reported a higher mean age among CPAP acceptors in a population in Israel. In Tai-wanese cohorts, Huang et al13found that CPAP acceptance was greater among patients aged < 55 years, while Yang et al found that CPAP acceptance was higher among patients aged 65 years.
