Lee W, Ahn J, We J, et al. Cardiopulmonary coupling analysis: changes before and after treatment with mandibular advancement device. Sleep Breath 2014; 18(4): 891-96. DOI: 10.1007/s11325-014-0961-5
To evaluate the changes of sleep quality in patients using a mandibular advancement device (MAD) for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) based upon cardiopulmonary coupling (CPC).
Significant improvement were demonstrated in CPC-parameters with the use of MAD.
The CPC parameter of sleep quality was improved by MAD therapy and could be used as a measure of treatment efficacy.
