Fixed pressure machines or standard CPAP Machines are machines that have a set pressure that is determined by your physician. This fixed pressure is chosen most likely because of the results of your titration study. A CPAP Titration is where you sleep with the CPAP Machine in a lab and the sleep technologist will titrate the pressure up until it effectively eliminates your apnea events and maintains a good oxygen level. A CPAP Machine setting is measured in cm of water.
Fixed pressure CPAP machines are still an effective way to treat your sleep apnea.
