Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Differences in compliance among the three different strategies, measured by CPAP hours of use [ Time Frame: six months follow-up ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • costs of the three different strategies, including number of visits and phone calls that were necessary to improve compliance and additional diagnostic tests. [ Time Frame: six months follow-up ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Domiciliary group
In this group OSA diagnosis was performed at patient's home by mean of non-attended RP. All follow-up visits were conducted by a trained nurse in patient's home.
Other: Diagnosis and monitoring of OSA patients
The difference between the three strategies is given by the method used for OSA diagnosis (domiciliary RP or hospital PSG) and the type of monitoring carried out after initiating CPAP treatment (by physician at hospital or by a trained nurse in patient's home)
Other Names:
  • Domiciliary group: group A
  • Hospital group: group B
  • Mixed Group: groupC
Active Comparator: Hospital Group
In this group diagnosis was made by in-hospital PSG. Follow-up was performed at hospital by a specialist Physician
Other: Diagnosis and monitoring of OSA patients
The difference between the three strategies is given by the method used for OSA diagnosis (domiciliary RP or hospital PSG) and the type of monitoring carried out after initiating CPAP treatment (by physician at hospital or by a trained nurse in patient's home)
Other Names:
  • Domiciliary group: group A
  • Hospital group: group B
  • Mixed Group: groupC
Active Comparator: Mixed Group
In this group diagnosis was made by home RP, and follow-up at hospital
Other: Diagnosis and monitoring of OSA patients
The difference between the three strategies is given by the method used for OSA diagnosis (domiciliary RP or hospital PSG) and the type of monitoring carried out after initiating CPAP treatment (by physician at hospital or by a trained nurse in patient's home)
Other Names:
  • Domiciliary group: group A
