Titration of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is performed to determine the CPAP setting to prescribe for an individual patient. A prediction equation has been published that could be used to improve the success rate of CPAP titrations. The goals of this study were: (1) to test the hypothesis that the use of the prediction equation would achieve a higher rate of successful CPAP titrations; (2) to validate the equation as an accurate predictor of the prescribed CPAP setting and… CONTINUE READING
