Group CPAP classes
Conducting group CPAP classes and assigning patients peer buddies can significantly reduce the amount of time respiratory therapists spend on new patient setups, and can lead to better compliance outcomes for patients!
Here are some easy-to-use resources to help make classes run smoothly:
- The Group CPAP Class sign-in sheet helps ensure patients are aware of and consent to the "group" aspect of class for HIPAA compliance.
- The patient checklist lets patients fill in their CPAP information and HME contact info to keep and always have handy. The checklist on the back side helps them take notes and recall what they learned.
- The Air Solutions DVD includes helpful videos for patients on how to use and care for their CPAP equipment. (Order on the ResMed Online Store).
