Researchers Discover That Stopping CPAP Causes Sleep Apnea Recurrence
August 12, 2011
I had to do a double take when I can across this article, which proudly announces that if you’re a successful CPAP user, stopping CPAP all of a sudden will cause your sleep apnea to return. That’s like saying if you stop drinking water, you’ll become thirsty. The original point of the study was to show that the physiologic consequences of sleep apnea can return once CPAP is withdrawn, but the title makes it sound like it’s a new discovery.
