Somnomed products research and development In einem unvergleichlich hohen Niveau investiert SomnoMed® in die klinische Forschung und Produktentwicklung. So wird auf Dauer Komfort, Qualität und Wirksamkeit der Produkte auf höchstem Entwicklungsstand gesichert.Es gibt bereits 16 Publikationen zur klinischen Wirksamkeit und Compliance für orale Schienen (COAT) im Vergleich zu CPAP. In den meisten Studien wird die Fähigkeit AHI zu reduzieren zwischen CPAP und Schienen (COAT) verglichen.Die wichtigsten Ergebnisse dieser kombinierten Studien sind:
  • Kein Unterschied im Behandlungserfolg von Schlafapnoe nach zwei Jahren
  • Die Schiene ist die bevorzugte Behandlungsform
  • Die Schiene weist eine höhere Therapietreue auf
  • Die Schiene ist beim Vergleich der Blutdruckwerte gleichwertig mit CPAP
  • Die morgendlichen Blutdruckwerte sind bei Schiene und CPAP gesenkt
