CPAP Titration

If you have been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea, one of the most effective treatments is CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure). The best way to determine the settings for this form of treatment is to have you come into the into the sleep lab for Nocturnal Polysomnogram .

After you fall asleep with the mask on your nose (sometimes your nose and mouth if you have trouble breathing through your nose), the technician gradually increases the pressure in the mask until all the apnea and snoring has been controlled and the oxygen levels have been normalized. Then we know that the treatment is working properly and what pressure you need to be put on at home.
