“Many seemingly mundane aspects of the sleep laboratory can have outsized effects on the quality of polysomnographic data obtained from, and care provided to, patients. This is particularly true when performing polysomnography on patients with chronic respiratory failure due to various causes. This article uses a disease-based approach to review physical and protocol-based accommodations that should be considered when performing polysomnography on this patient population.”
