Outcomes in the CPAP Versus Non-CPAP Groups

Outcomes in the CPAP Versus Non-CPAP Groups


  New Vascular Events

There was a statistically nonsignificant difference between the number of vascular events (6 [15%]) in the non-CPAP group at 12-month follow-up, as compared to a single event (3.3%) noted in the CPAP group.

 Stroke

The baseline Barthel Index scores were improved in both groups. No significant differences were observed between the mean Barthel Index scores in both groups. At 6-month follow-up, 15 patients (50%) in the CPAP arm compared with 9 patients (22%) in the non-CPAP arm showed improvement on the mRS by ≥ 1 point. At the 12-month follow-up, 16 patients (53.3%) in the CPAP arm showed such improvement compared with only 11 patients (27.5%) in the non-CPAP arm. These differences are statistically significant, as well as clinically meaningful and relevant. Kaplan-Meier survival analysis showed statistically nonsignificant difference favoring the CPAP arm.
