Continuous positive airway pressure
CPAP TITRATION STUDY
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure
CPAP, or continuous positive airway pressure, is a treatment that uses mild air pressure to keep the airways open. CPAP typically is used by people who have breathing problems, such as sleep apnea.
Similar to an NPSG, your brain waves, oxygen levels, heart rate and breathing, and leg movements will be monitored throughout the night, with the addition of a CPAP machine. The mask of the CPAP is fitted so that a continuous stream of air is introduced into the nose as you breathe, keeping the airway open. Your technician that will be there with you throughout the process can increase or decrease the air flow (pressure) as needed, determining which pressure is best for you.
