Unattended CPAP Titration Study

An automatic calibration test performed with a CPAP machine that measures the patient's airway pressure requirements during sleep. This is performed after determining that a patient has a sleep related breathing disorder such as OSA or Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome, and is likely to benefit from CPAP therapy. These findings are then used to prescribe the appropriate pressure the patient will use with their CPAP therapy.1
