CPAP setting

If obstructive sleep apnea syndrome has been discovered in a patient, CPAP treatment can be useful. This prevents the airways from collapsing during the night, thereby preventing breathing interruptions, decreases in blood oxygen level and waking reactions of the body.


The diagnosis is made through a patient medical history, a physical exam and a polygraph. If there is evidence of sleep apnea, the patient is first provided with comprehensive information about the diagnosis and treatment options (including CPAP ventilator treatment at home). The patient has the opportunity to see and try out the treatment with the CPAP device and mask at the practice. If the patient decides for this treatment, a mask will be fitted and the treatment initiated during the same appointment.

The heart and lung practice takes care of the settings for the devices.
