Step 1: After meeting with the respirologist, we will give you a 90-minute appointment with a respiratory therapist (RT) to begin treatment.
Step 2: During the CPAP setup, your RT will present a selection of CPAP devices and encourage you to manipulate and listen to them. In addition, you will test a series of masks in our sleep lab until you are comfortable. When we say we take time with you, we mean it. If you are not satisfied with your mask or your CPAP device, we will try other material until we get it right. Our goal is to help you to sleep better and to improve the quality of your life.
Step 3: Apnea Health will provide ongoing support with scheduled appointments and an open-door policy should you require assistance immediately. If you are experiencing trouble, we encourage you to drop in to your local clinic, and our receptionist will ensure that you are seen by a respiratory therapist (RT). If the RT cannot solve the issue or a change of prescription is required, he or she will consult with the respirologist (sleep doctor) for guidance.
