The Effectiveness Equation™ is a tool we developed to compare Oral Appliance Therapy and CPAP and promote the published clinical literature on oral appliances.
The premise of the Effectiveness Equation™ is that both compliance and efficacy should be considered in the treatment of OSA. CPAP is a very efficacious treatment, but only when it is worn, with many patients wearing their masks for only 4 hours a night. Oral appliances are not as efficacious, but their adherence is generally much better, with most patients wearing their oral appliances for the whole night’s. sleep. Over the whole night, CPAP and OAT may be equally effective at reducing apnea events in mild and moderate OSA sufferers.
We invite our partners to share the Effectiveness Equation™ with the Medical professionals that work with them and discuss the relative benefits of both OSA treatments. For an introduction to the Effectiveness Equation™
