I see a lot of talk about a titration study...is this something that needs to be done for everyone? I finally got a call and am tentativly scheduled to do my 2 night at-home sleep study on the 20th of this month...just curious if this is something that is or can be done with the at home study.

The titration part of things is where you have already been diagnosed with sleep apnea and they hook you up to the mask and machine and "titrate" or experiment with pressures to find out which pressure you happen to need to hold your airway open.

Sometimes the titration is done in a sleep lab and sometimes insurance/doctors decide to do the titration phase/sleep experiment at home with a machine that can auto adjust and then they evaluate the data to decide on what pressure is the most optimal pressure.
Pros and cons to either way.

But the home study to diagnose sleep apnea is different from the titration study because with the titration study you are actually using the mask and machine.
When diagnosing they attach stuff to your body but no machine is involved.
