    St Mary s Hospital, Box 1628, Grand Junction, CO 81502, USA
    Chest 130:1744-50. 2006
    ..The present requirement for "at facility" polysomnograms requires many residents in mountain communities to descend in elevation for sleep testing, which may cause misleading results regarding the severity of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)...
  2. pmc CPAP pressure requirements for obstructive sleep apnea patients at varying altitudes
    David S Patz
    Department of Medicine, St Mary s Hospital, Grand Junction, CO, USA
    Sleep 33:715-8. 2010
    ..This study was performed to determine whether the obstructive sleep apnea patient who requires a certain CPAP pressure at one altitude requires the same or a different CPAP pressure at a different altitude...

    St Mary s Hospital, Grand Junction, CO 81507, USA
    High Alt Med Biol 14:168-74. 2013
    ..Dead space did not appear to increase the CO2 reserve. At 12,000 ft., central apneas can be effectively reduced with a dead space mask, but clinical utility will require further evaluation...
