Sleep Testing Overview

Polysomnogram (PSG)

The Polysomnogram (PSG) is the test to determine whether a person has Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Once the diagnosis has been confirmed CPAP therapy is one viable solution. It remains the most effective treatment for OSA.

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is applied through a nasal mask/interface. A small unit at the bedside delivers pressure which acts as a splint to keep the airway open thus eliminating snoring and obstructive apneas. The second night CPAP titration study allows for the customizing of pressure for the individual patient.
