Preparing for the Examination (for adults)
In some cases, it will be possible, within the same night and according to the established protocol, to carry out a diagnostic phase followed by a treatment phase.
- During Phase 1 (first part of the night), we record various parameters linked to your sleep
- During Phase 2 (second part of the night), using a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device, a therapy will be initiated to adjust the optimal pressure level required to counter the airway passage obstructions and thus control your sleep apnea
Please note that to move from Phase 1 (diagnosis) to Phase 2 (therapy), the healthcare professional trained in sleep care must observe several criteria, including a minimum number of respiratory events consistent with the split-night protocol during the diagnostic phase.
A medical prescription is required to perform this examination.
