Our CPAP Clinic has a unique structure where we can provide CPAP Therapist consultations to patients on a one-to-one basis, this gives patients the best opportunity for success when initiating CPAP Therapy. The structure also allows CPAP Therapists direct access to liaise with our patients’ Sleep Physicians and access to the Sleep Clinic’s overnight sleep study data. These data and interactions are invaluable when initiating CPAP Therapy and help us to resolve problems quickly and tailor the care for each individual patient.
