Brief Summary:
This study will investigate Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and an automatically Adjusting Positive Airway Pressure (APAP) device with new technology called SensAwake™. This requires experimental confirmation in a randomised controlled trial with crossover design, comparing compliance on standard APAP with compliance using APAP modified by the addition of the SensAwake™ modification on consecutive nights in participants with moderate−to−severe OSA.

Arm Intervention/treatment
No Intervention: APAP begins without SensAwake
Patients will receive CPAP treatment without SensAwake™ activation for two weeks, then crossed-over to CPAP treatment with SensAwake™ activation for additional two weeks.
Experimental: APAP begins with SensAwake

Patients will receive CPAP treatment with SensAwake™ activation for two weeks, then crossed-over to CPAP treatment without SensAwake™ activation for additional two weeks.

SensAwake™ modification: SensAwake™ is a new design based on the research of Doctor Ayappa 5 years ago. The SensAwake™ modification to the Fisher and Paykel automatically titrating positive airway pressure (APAP) device aims to sense whether the patient is awake via respiratory patterns that differentiate between sleep and wake. Upon sensing that the patient is awake the device is able to reduce positive airway pressure PAP aiming to improve patient comfort which should result in more consolidated sleep.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Compliance of Auto-CPAP Therapy [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    Objective data recorded in the auto-CPAP machine, Percentage of nights of using auto-CPAP for at least 4 hours during therapy.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Average SA Detections [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    Average detects of arousal per hours. (Objective data recorded in the auto-CPAP machine)

  2. Average Pressures of Auto-CPAP Machine [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    Average Pressures of Auto-CPAP Machine (Objective data recorded in the auto-CPAP machine)

  3. 90th Percentile Pressures of Auto-CPAP Machine [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    90th percentile pressures of auto-CPAP machine (Objective data recorded in the auto-CPAP machine)

  4. Average Leaks of Auto-CPAP Machine [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    Average leaks of auto-CPAP machine (Objective data recorded in the auto-CPAP machine)

  5. 90th Percentile Leaks of Auto-CPAP Machine [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    Average leaks of auto-CPAP machine (Objective data recorded in the auto-CPAP machine)

  6. Residual Apnea-Hypopnea Index (AHI) [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    Residual Apnea-Hypopnea index (Objective data recorded in the auto-CPAP machine) means events of apnea and hypopnea per hour during CPAP therapy.

  7. Time Used of Auto-CPAP Machine [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    Average Time used of auto-CPAP machine (Objective data recorded in the auto-CPAP machine)

  8. Percentage of Day Used of Auto-CPAP Machine [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    Percentage of day used of auto-CPAP machine (Objective data recorded in the auto-CPAP machine)

  9. Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    The Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) is a self-report questionnaire that assesses sleep quality over a 1-month time interval. Overall score is ranging from 0 to 21, where lower scores denote a healthier sleep quality.

  10. Epworth Sleepiness Score (ESS) [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    The ESS is a self-administered questionnaire with 8 questions. The ESS score can range from 0 to 24, where higher scores denote a worse daytime sleepiness.

  11. Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation (NOSE) [ Time Frame: 2 weeks ]
    The Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation (NOSE) is a self-administered questionnaire with 11 questions. The NOSE score can range from 0 to 44, where higher scores denote a worse nasal obstruction.
