As a sleep therapy provider it is our goal to help providers find the best solution to their patient's sleep therapy.

Often times, if CPAP therapy isn't working it can be difficult to know what next step should be taken. It all depends on each patient's situation. How long has the patient been on sleep therapy? What kind of device is the patient currently using? How long into the rental period is the patient? 

Please know that whatever the situation, the Oxygen One Respiratory Clinicians will work with the physician and patient for the best possible outcome. 

 

  • Most patients with obstructive sleep apnea are first prescribed a single CPAP pressure on a CPAP or AutoPAP device. If the patient is not successful on a single pressure, then the physician should prescribe an AutoPAP pressure range. If AutoPAP pressure capabilities have reached their limit (ie: 4-20 cm), failed to improve sleep quality, or failed to reduce patient's symptoms, then the patient should complete a Titration Study in a sleep lab or AutoBiPAP.

 

Oxygen One is here to help you find the right solution for your patient. Please call us if you need assistance or have questions.

 We carry a wide variety of PAP devices. While we sell all units (shown below) for retail purposes, we have chosen the most versatile units for our sleep therapy patients. We carefully test each unit for reliability, with an emphasis on patient preferences. We have marked these specific units with an astrix (*) to differentiate them from the other PAP units.
