The "conclusion" should read "non-compliant use of CPAP is no different than non use of CPAP among cardiac patients."
Non compliance is a major problem for Apnea sufferers and those paying for their therapy. Insurance companies and Medicare do what they can to force compliance during the first few months of therapy but lose control in the long run. This study should or could be used to encourage CPAP users to use their machines all night every night. To put this perspective I could get an average compliance of 3.3 hours per night by using my machine for 3 nights per week.
