Anyone may come in and speak with a licensed respiratory therapist free of charge to learn about new technologies, insurance regulations, mask fittings and steps needed to get CPAP. They can also bring in their machines to be calibrated and get set up with an overnight screening at no charge.
CPAP is a method of respiratory ventilation used primarily in the treatment of sleep apnea. It is also used to assist premature babies with breathing in the NICU setting.
Do you snore? or Does your spouse snore? Do they stop breathing in their sleep? Do you no longer sleep in the same room because of the snoring? Are you tired a lot? Do you wake up a lot at night? Do you have cardiac issues?
All of such questions are included in the process of screening a patient for CPAP.
Refreshments and snacks will be provided. No appointment is needed. Nor do you need to be affiliated with St. Luke’s Home Care to come in.
