PAP (Positive Airway Pressure) Program

The Sleep Cen­ter of DMG’s staff edu­cates patients through all phas­es of the sleep study process. For patients diag­nosed with sleep apnea and pre­scribed a PAP ther­a­py, our CPAP coor­di­na­tor will assist in mask accli­ma­tion and equip­ment procurement. 

For patients expe­ri­enc­ing dif­fi­cul­ty adjust­ing to PAP ther­a­py, we offer a PAP-NAP study. This four hour vis­it with a reg­is­tered sleep tech­nol­o­gist pro­vides one-on-one time to edu­cate the patient on their sleep dis­or­der and treat­ment, mask fit­ting, desen­si­ti­za­tion and accli­ma­tion tech­niques and a short sleep study. A PAP-NAP is espe­cial­ly help­ful to patients who expe­ri­ence anx­i­ety, claus­tro­pho­bia, inabil­i­ty to tol­er­ate mask pres­sures and a vari­ety of oth­er concerns.
