The PAP NAP is a daytime sleep study conducted to desensitize patients to PAP therapy, especially patients who have acute anxiety about using PAP due to insomnia or other anxiety conditions. The procedure is attended by a sleep technologist and ranges from 3-5 hours in length.
How does the PAP NAP work?
The procedure is a short, in-lab study lasting anywhere form 60-240 minutes.

Patients are given the opportunity to sleep during the PAP NAP and are encouraged to come in in comfortable clothes to promote sleep.
