Using Feedback from Naturalistic Driving to Improve Treatment Adherence in Drivers with Obstructive Sleep Apnea

The authors study the effects of individualized feedback upon adherence with therapy (CPAP) in ongoing research aimed at improving driving safety in at-risk individuals with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). The feedback includes specific samples of the individual’s own naturalistic driving record, both alert and drowsy, and record of CPAP adherence. The authors report on this methodology, provide data examples of CPAP usage, and show preliminary data on the results in the first eleven drivers who received this intervention.
