Newer management paradigms are being increasingly implemented to cope with high demand and limited specialist sleep services. These pathways have been primarily used in patients with high clinical risk for obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), but also need to be extended to other clinical populations including those with co‐morbidities. It is increasingly recognized that while continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is very effective in correcting OSA and improving sleepiness, reductions in cardiovascular complications and mortality have not been demonstrated. Poor acceptance and suboptimal use of CPAP undoubtedly contribute to this. Emerging technologies, including device connectivity and web‐based applications, are allowing patients to
