How have the patterns of surgical sleep procedures used to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) changed over time?
What upper airway (UA) collapse patterns can be seen during drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE), and how do they compare with baseline patient characteristics?
Are measurements of real-world clinical outcomes other than the apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) useful in managing obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)?
Sleep interruptions can reduce patients’ threshold of pain, increase risk of complications, extend convalescence, contribute to poor physical/mental performance, lower patient satisfaction
Can risk factors for oxygen desaturation be predictors for post-operative apneic death in pediatric obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients?
Snoring without OSA may contribute independently to cardiovascular disease and mortality
