Prospective Cohort Clinical Study with Objective Assessments

Location: London, UK
Cohort: 29 male and 17 female patients aged 26 to 70, 24 primary snorers (AHI<5) and 22 mild OSA (AHI 5-15), Average BMI 27

98% of patients achieved an average reduction of 44% in snoring time at greater than 40 decibels

Overview

The aim of this Prospective Cohort Clinical Study was to use objective measures and assess the reproducibility of the outcomes of the previous study at another independent facility. This was a prospective cohort study on individuals with Primary Snoring and/or Mild OSA (AHI <15).

The study assessed objective snoring (% time snoring) and respiratory parameters (AHI, RDI, Saturations) with two consecutive night sleep studies before and two consecutive night sleep studies after the use of the device. This was supplemented with bed partner VAS recordings and sleep quality questionnaires – Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI).

The eXciteOSA® device was used for 20-minutes, once a day for a 6-week period.
