The Effectiveness of Behavioral Therapy is Studied in Two Abstracts to be Presented at 19th Annual Meeting of the APSS Distribution Source : U.S. Newswire Contact: Kathleen McCann of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, 773-791-5260 or kathleenmmccann@hotmail.com; Web: http://www.apss.org WESTCHESTER, Ill., June 16 /U.S. Newswire/ -- The two following abstracts that study the effectiveness of behavioral therapy are among the body of research scheduled to be presented at the 19th Annual Meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies (APSS) in Denver, Colorado from June 20 - 22: Cognitive Behavior Therapy Improves the Sleep of Fibromyalgia Patients Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) improves the sleep of fibromyalgia patients. The study was conducted by Jack D. Edinger of the VA Medical Center and Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, and colleagues. They compared the effects of six weeks of either CBT, sleep hygiene training, or standard care for 45 women and two men with fibromyalgia who reported having symptoms of insomnia for more than one month. Results of the study show that CBT out-performs sleep hygiene training and standard care, as a significantly greater percentage of CBT patients receive ratings of "improved" after treatment. Fibromyalgia is a debilitating condition characterized by widespread pain, fatigue, low mood, and sleep disturbance, according to background information in the abstract. Therapies for fibromyalgia have largely ignored the sleep complaints associated with this condition. Combining New Technology with Behavioral Therapy Improves Patient Adherence to PAP Treatment for Sleep Apnea Patients receiving flexible positive airway pressure (PAP) treatment combined with Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET) adhere to their obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) treatment better than standard continuous-PAP (CPAP) users. The study of 137 men and women with OSA was conducted by Mark S. Aloia of Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island and colleagues. Results show that patients who receive flexible PAP combined with MET therapy are four times as likely as patients utilizing standard CPAP to be optimal users of their respective treatments after six months. Two sessions of MET therapy, which is based on psychological theories of behavior change, were performed with 51 of the participants after one week of either flexible PAP or CPAP use. A joint venture of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Sleep Research Society, the APSS Annual Meeting will bring an international body of 5,000 leading researchers and clinicians in the field of sleep medicine to Denver's Colorado Convention Center. http://www.usnewswire.com/ © 2005 U.S. Newswire
