Getting Used to CPAP

CPAP Acclimation Test

If you have sleep apnea or another sleep-related breathing disorder and you are nervous about using the CPAP machine, the technologist who does your diagnostic study may suggest you receive a CPAP Acclimation Test.

The test will be scheduled during the day. It generally takes about an hour to complete. You will see the kinds of CPAP masks that are available and the technologist will fit you for a mask.

After the acclimation, you will need to have a full night CPAP Titration Study to determine the best pressure to treat your sleep apnea.
