Obstructive and Central Sleep Apnea (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Once a formal diagnosis of sleep apnea is made, proper follow-up with the primary care physician and the sleep doctor is very important. Appropriate management of any underlying conditions and encouraging behavioral therapies play a significant role.
Assessment of the symptoms of sleep apnea, adherence to treatment, fitting the sleep apnea mask, and adjustment of CPAP machine settings are also important components of follow-up care.
