What is a CPAP Titration?
If the results of your polysomnogram test (PSG) reveal that you have sleep apnea, your doctor may recommend that you have a CPAP Titration. The CPAP Titration is identical to a polysomnogram with the addition of a medical device known as a continuous positive airway pressure machine (CPAP). This machine blows pressurized air into the nose and mouth via a mask in order to eliminate the snoring and pauses in breathing that sleep apnea produces. The CPAP Titration is an overnight sleep study used to determine the most effective airflow setting for your CPAP machine. The test also ensures that you have been given the right mask that will produce the best possible results.
