Title: SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR PROVIDING FEEDBACK TO A SUBJECT REGARDING RECEPTION OF POSITIVE AIRWAY SUPPORT THERAPY
Abstract:
A system and method provide feedback to a subject regarding compliance to a positive airway pressure support therapy regime. The feedback is provided to the subject in real-time (or near real-time). The feedback indicates to the subject whether a usage goal has been achieved. The usage goal may be dynamically and adaptively determined based on past usage by the subject. This may facilitate the automatic generation of usage goals for the subject that are realistic and gradually increase the compliance of the subject over time.
