Emergency Split Protocols

Postby Winnie026 » Thu Nov 03, 2016 7:46 pm

What is the usual Emergency Split protocol in a private sleep lab setting? Getting different answers from different sources, and wanted some input. Thanks :)

Update: Everything I've been seeing says "AHI 40 or greater with desat of 70% or less". Does that sound about right?

We also had cardiac involvement. If AHI >40 w/desats <70% OR cardiac arrhythmias.

Yes, cardiac is a big part of it, but ours is pretty simple. AHI > 30 with 2 hours of sleep and 3 hours left to titrate.

All split night protocols are going to be Sleep Center-specific.
