Outcomes in the CPAP Versus Non-CPAP Groups
New Vascular Events
There was a statistically nonsignificant difference between the number of vascular events (6 [15%]) in the non-CPAP group at 12-month follow-up, as compared to a single event (3.3%) noted in the CPAP group.
The baseline Barthel Index scores were improved in both groups. No significant differences were observed between the mean Barthel Index scores in both groups. At 6-month follow-up, 15 patients (50%) in the CPAP arm compared with 9 patients (22%) in the non-CPAP arm showed improvement on the mRS by ≥ 1 point. At the 12-month follow-up, 16 patients (53.3%) in the CPAP arm showed such improvement compared with only 11 patients (27.5%) in the non-CPAP arm. These differences are statistically significant, as well as clinically meaningful and relevant. Kaplan-Meier survival analysis showed statistically nonsignificant difference favoring the CPAP arm.
