Following up on your treatment

The importance of follow-up care

Once your equipment is set up and you're comfortable using it, it's important to follow up on your treatment progress. Staying committed to follow-up care is the best way for you and your healthcare team to monitor your sleep health.

You may find that after some time, your treatment needs have changed, which may mean changing your mask and/or therapy device settings. Following up on your treatment is also a good way for your care provider to see how you're responding to your specific therapy and adjust it if necessary, so you can continue to get the most out of your treatment.

How often should I go back to my care provider for a 'check-up'?

Some equipment suppliers and care providers have their own follow-up routines, but in many countries and organisations, an annual check-up is performed. If you stop feeling the benefits of treatment even though you're using your equipment every night, please speak to your care provider as soon as possible.
