Sleep Review‘s webinar How to Improve Adherence in Patients Titrated at Home by Auto CPAP is now available for free and immediate on-demand viewing.
More people are being diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea and starting positive airway pressure therapy without ever spending the night inside a sleep disorders center. Sleep clinicians are challenged with ensuring that patients who are titrated at home via auto CPAP (also known as APAP) start and stick to their treatment. Learn real-world approaches to improving adherence in patients titrated at home by auto CPAP from physicians with expertise in prescribing the devices.
In this free 1 hour, 22-minute webinar hosted and moderated by Sleep Review, attendees will learn:
- what the research says about in-lab versus at-home titration adherence outcomes
- how to select patients who can undergo at-home titration and tips for interfacing with payors for patients that need in-lab titrations
- specific tips for education and follow-up to boost adherence in patients titrated at-home.
The on-demand version includes a recording of the live Q&A segment.

He has been the principal investigator and co-investigator on multiple research grants with funding from the VA, AHRQ, NIH, and PCORI, among others. His primary focus has been on studying interventions to help patients adapt to using CPAP therapy using a variety of self-management and informational technological approaches.
