Initial CPAP consultations
If you are already on CPAP therapy and haven’t been reviewed in a few years, Synergy Sleep can review the data from the CPAP/APAP device you are currently using (if available). We will check your compliance and the efficacy of the treatment; this will determine how well your current CPAP device is working for you. We will also show you, in detail, the downloaded data, ensuring you better understand your own reports.
We will offer advice on how to improve your CPAP therapy and guide you through the review process if further investigation of your CPAP pressure is required due to insufficient pressure or if you are symptomatic despite CPAP therapy. Synergy Sleep will review and discuss the physiology of sleep apnoea and how CPAP/APAP therapy works to control your diagnosed sleep disordered breathing.
Please allow at least forty-five minutes for your initial appointment.
CPAP setup consultations
CPAP/APAP setup up appointments will cover the physiology of sleep apnoea, review of your sleep study results, and we educate you on how CPAP/APAP therapy works to control your diagnosed sleep disordered breathing.
A comprehensive mask fitting is required to select the appropriate mask (if you don’t already have a mask prescription from a hospital) and the selection of the appropriate machine followed by education on how to use and care for your mask, machine, and humidifier.
Please allow at least one hour for your setup, there is a lot to cover in your first appointment.
General / follow-up consultations
General appointments require our clinic to download data from your current CPAP/APAP device which will tell us if your treatment is working, during the consultation we will resolve mask fit or leak, if required, address issues with tolerance to pressure, review compliance and efficacy of CPAP/APAP therapy, go over sleep hygiene/behaviours that may affect sleep quality, and check humidification settings.
Please allow at least thirty minutes for your follow up appointment and forty-five minutes for general consultations.
It is recommended to have at least four to six follow up consultations in the first six months of using CPAP/APAP, but you may choose less as you start to take control of your own therapy.
All CPAP/APAP machines sold through Synergy Sleep receive five years of unlimited consultations, downloads, and reports for general practitioners and specialists. You will also become a platinum member and are rewarded with lifetime discounts and special member offers.
