Study Finds V̇-Com™ Device Improves Patient Adherence

The V-Com, a CPAP accessory that reduces inspiratory pressure and flow to provide comfort with minimal to no reduction in expiratory pressure, was shown to improve 90-day CPAP adherence in a trial completed by Detroit-based medical equipment company Sleep Solutions. 

In the trial of 100 patients beginning CPAP, 50 patients received standard care, while 50 patients received standard care with the V-Com device in their CPAP circuit. The study found that 12% more of those in the V-Com group met the 90-day Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services requirement for adherence.
