Patients cite many reasons for noncompliance with NPAP, including discomfort, inconvenience, cost, or embarrassment.
Providers typically attempt to maximize compliance with NPAP by promoting its medical benefits or by warning patients of the risks involved in not being treated, but this approach does not always work," concludes Benton.
As the majority of waste NPAP from farms now ends up in landfill, Government has been working with affected industries looking at ways of dealing with these materials in a more sustainable way.
A consultation seeks views on whether the industry as a whole agrees that a recycling system is still needed, and if so it proposes the introduction of either on-farm collection, or collection points for NPAP which would be free at the point of use for farmers.
During the study, researchers evaluated the impact of NPAP on the golf handicap index (HI) of 12 golfers with diagnosed moderate to severe OSA.
Through treatment with NPAP, we can improve many cognitive metrics, such as attention span, memory, decision-making abilities, and frustration management, which may, in turn, positively affect a person's golf game," he added.
