As far as a sleep study, what happens in 2-night evaluation polysomnogram (PSG) and continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) titration?

ANSWER

For a 2-night evaluation PSG and CPAP titration sleep study: On the first night, you'll have general monitoring and evaluation. If sleep apnea is found, you'll come back for a second night to find the right air pressure for CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) treatment. CPAP puts air into your airways through a specially designed mask.
