Clinical guidelines for the evaluation of adults with obstructive sleep apnea

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common disorder with significant health and performance consequences. Effective therapies are available but require long-term management because of the chronic nature of the disorder. The low rates of treatment are due primarily to under-recognition of the disorder. Given the high prevalence and significant consequences of lack of treatment, an evaluation for OSA should become part of any general routine health maintenance evaluation. Herein, we discuss the evaluation of the patient with OSA.
