Positive Airway Pressure (PAP) Session is a new data type for storing session data recorded by PAP devices.  These devices are commonly used in the treatment of sleep apnea.  The data is intended to assist users and physicians with tracking the progress and effectiveness of the treatment.  This data type draft has been designed with the cooperation of one of our device partners.  If you have any feedback, please let us know.
