A Clinical Review of Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) often are overlooked or misinterpreted, but without treatment, patients are at increased risk for potentially life-threatening conditions including stroke and heart failure. Clinician awareness of the risk factors for and treatment of OSA can prevent the development or progression of these complications in patients.

Learning Objectives

  • Define OSA
  • Correlate OSA pathophysiology to complications of untreated disease
  • Identify risk factors for OSA and indications for a sleep study
  • Describe treatments for OSA, including considerations for specific patient populations
