When to Prescribe Advanced PAP Therapies for Patients Struggling with CPAP

  • Date: Tuesday, May 29, 2018
  • Time: 12:15 PM Pacific Daylight Time
  • Duration: 1 hour, 30 minutes
Summary

When obstructive sleep apnea patients fail or can't adhere to the continuous form of positive airway pressure therapy (commonly known as CPAP), there are other options that clinicians should explore to get patients to adherence. In some cases, these other options include advanced positive airway pressure modes such as bilevel devices and adaptive servo-ventilation (ASV), which take into account such parameters as expiratory pressure intolerance. Learn what the literature says about these "rescue" devices as well as real-world approaches to switching patients to advanced therapies when indicated.

Been There Done That

The Been There, Done That group has already been once around the block, maybe twice. You've seen doctors of various types, maybe even sleep doctors, but your results are less than satisfactory. The question you might be asking is, "Is it worth taking a second (or third...) look at what's going on?" We think so and encourage you to explore this section now.
