Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) is comprised of various structural and neural pathologies of the upper airway. Ob-structive sleep apnea (OSA) is among the most prevalent forms of SDB. Regardless of disease severity, OSA has a host of metabolic and cardiovascular comorbid conditions. Mild and moderate apnea is often treated with positive pressure devices including APAP, BiPAP, and CPAP. However, 46% to 83% of patients are nonadherent if compliance is defined as usage for 4 or more hours per night.
