Treatment of Sleep Apnoea at Hospital Clínic

Reading time: 1 min

Every year at the Hospital Clínic we start continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment in over 300 patients. We complete 1,700 sleep studies each year, both in patients’ homes and at the hospital. Similarly, we carry out 1,700 CPAP follow-up visits in the specialised adaptation consultation and while monitoring the treatment.

The Hospital Clínic sleep laboratory was a pioneer of the multidisciplinary approach to treatment, placing an emphasis on educating and training patients about CPAP, and in the validation of diagnostic methods and automatic CPAP units to optimise the management of sleep apnoea.

The Clínic was accredited by the Spanish Society of Pulmonology and Thoracic Surgery (SEPAR) as an expert multidisciplinary sleep unit in 2015 and an excellent non-invasive home ventilation unit in 2018.
