What will happen next?

Post by plod » Sun Apr 08, 2018 11:50 am

I have been diagnosed with OSA and have a machine I use regularly. I am fairly sure that my sister-in-law has OSA; she has had a home test - I guess it is the oximeter, a gadget on her thumb. She returned to the hospital and my wife went with her. They returned with a date to go in for a night. They think it is to be fitted with a CPAP machine which she will bring home the next day. As I am experienced with this we will stay with her for those difficult first few days. I think she is going to be wired up to see if she needs a CPAP machine.

I had a similar test, but it was in France and they gave me a machine immediately. Any views on what may/will happen when she goes in?

Hi Plod,

It maybe that there giving her a full overnight study -polysomnography test (psg)
If it is that then it’s the best test you can have for osa.
Perhaps call the hospital and ask for the details .

Regards,

Thanks for that; she is having a PSG test; the reason I posted was that we will stay with her after she has the machine to help her get used to it. Im not sure that she will get her machine straightaway. Not really appropriate for me to speak to the clinic, and my wife is adamant about what will happen. Time will tell!
