The fully accredited Tanner Center for Sleep Disorders and its team of specially trained physicians can determine the cause of your sleepless nights and put you on the road to recovery.


A PAP nap is a short, daytime sleep study to help patients who have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea adjust to treatment. 

PAP naps help you overcome anxieties and difficulties when beginning continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy.

What happens during a PAP nap?

PAP nap sessions are short, usually lasting about an hour. During the session, our sleep technologists identify and work through barriers that are hindering your CPAP therapy. 

Our specialists also provide one-on-one assistance to help you make adjustments to your equipment and answer questions.

PAP nap benefits

PAP naps have proven to help patients who may be reluctant to continue CPAP therapy.

What is a CPAP therapy?

During CPAP therapy, a device with a hose and nose piece called a CPAP machine is used to deliver a gentle flow of air through the airway. PAP naps help you adjust to treatment using your breathing mask.

PAP naps are available at the Tanner Center for Sleep Disorders in Carrollton, Villa Rica and Wedowee. You can learn more or schedule an appointment with a sleep medicine specialist at Tanner by calling 770-812-9146.
