Titration Study

Once you are diagnosed with one of these disorders, you may need a CPAP study before you can begin treatment. Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Pap therapy study: Prescribed for a second night after polysomnography or
after a positive diagnosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnea. A
CPAP titration study is a type of in-lab sleep study used to calibrate continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. CPAP is a common treatment used to manage sleep-related breathing disorders including obstructive sleep apnea, central; sleep apnea and hypoventilation and hypoxemia.

In some cases, members of the sleep team may perform a CPAP titration study on the same night as an in-lab sleep study. This is known as a split-night sleep study. The CPAP titration occurs in the second half of the night. This is usually only offered if the sleep apnea is very severe and the diagnosis is clear.



In our lab


Nasal CPAP will be used to treat your medical condition. Nasal CPAP has been shown to be effective treatment reverse the effects of obstructive sleep apnea and provides effective treatment. When CPAP is used, the continuous positive airway pressure is delivered by a flow generator through a small mask which fits over the nose. The flow of pressure keeps the airway open and free from obstruction. 


During the study, you will sleep with the nasal mask on; where the CPAP pressure will be slowly adjusted until the proper pressure has been reached to effectively eliminate respiratory disturbances and snoring. Then, you will sleep for the rest of the night with the pressure at that level. This is to ensure the elimination of apneas and snoring at all stages of sleep.
