A Titration study is performed after a patient has been diagnosed with
Obstructive Sleep Apnea. It is
done to determine the correct Cpap pressure setting.
During this study you will be connected to a computerized Cpap device
that is managed by the Respiratory Technician.
All the sensors used during the PSG study are utilized during this
test as well. The pressure first
begins at the lowest level and then gradually increases until the airway
obstruction is resolved. Cpap can be
ordered based on these settings.
