POSITIVE AIRWAY PRESSURE TITRATION STUDY

A PAP titration sleep study is similar to a regular sleep study but in addition will require the placement of a Positve Airway Pressure (PAP) device over your nose, or nose and mouth to provide additional airflow and pressure to keep your airways open and to assist your breathing. The Polysomnography, also called a sleep study,  records your brain waves, the oxygen level in your blood, heart rate and breathing, as well as eye and leg movements during the study while you have the Positve Airway Pressure settings adjusted to find the best setting at which the patient breaths comfortably, sleeps comfortably and has optimal oxygen levels. This study is done at all our sleep labs. You’ll be asked to come to the sleep center in the evening (After 8pm) for PAP titration
A titration study can be a CONTINOUS POSITIVE AIRWAY PRESSURE STUDY (CPAP) OR A BI-LEVEL POSITIVE AIRWAY PRESSURE STUDY (BIPAP)
