Sleep Apnea and Cognitive Changes in Older Adults Study

This study is looking for people aged 50 to 80 with suspected sleep apnea and who are experiencing changes in their thinking skills but do not have dementia (referred to as Mild Cognitive Impairment).

The aim of this study is to examine if using Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) for three months is associated with a slower rate of cognitive decline and/or beneficial effects in daytime functioning. Patients will be offered assessments of their sleep (to confirm sleep apnea) and an evaluation of their thinking skills (to confirm mild cognitive impairment). If you have changes in your thinking and are not currently using CPAP therapy please contact us below.
