ADAPTING TO TREATMENT
Once you have your equipment installed and feel comfortable using it, it is important to follow up on your treatment.
Staying committed to follow-up is the best way to check that your apnea is under control.
After a while, you may find that your treatment needs have changed, which may mean changing your mask, or changing the setting of your machine. Follow-up is also very useful and important so that your doctor can know how you are responding to the specific treatment and adjust it if necessary so that you can continue to get the most out of the therapy
