Sleep Apnea in TBI Patients
Comparison of sleep apnea assessment strategies to maximize traumatic brain injury rehabilitation participation and outcome.
- Must have been diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury
- Currently admitted to an inpatient rehabilitation program
- Must be 16 years of age or older
What This Study Is About
Sponsored by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), researchers at Baylor Scott & White Rehabilitation are looking for individuals with traumatic brain injury to enroll in a study to compare the effects of existing screening and diagnostic tools for sleep apnea.
What You Would Do
Participating in the study includes wearing an Actiwatch to see if you’re sleeping at least two hours on two consecutive nights and determine if you’re eligible for the study. If eligible, you will be scheduled for an overnight sleep study at bedside on the inpatient unit. You will be compensated for your time.
