Why do I need to have another sleep study?

Often times a second sleep study is ordered by your physician so that a titration with CPAP or BPAP can be performed. Although some individuals will have what’s called a split night study during which the second half of the night CPAP is applied. If you do not have a split night study it does not mean that you don’t have sleep apnea--it simply means that the physician needs to interpret the study before making further recommendations.
