Using CPAP during a public health emergency like the COVID-19 pandemic means navigating potential infection risks posed through a process called AGP or aerosol generating procedure, of which CPAP is an example. To this end, we have compiled the most effective approaches that address the three scenarios of concern that are most often voiced by patients during the pandemic.
