Based on the original Perioperative Management of Sleep Apnea and Noninvasive Respiratory Management for the Hospitalist, by Peter G. Kallas, MD.

Summary

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has an increased incidence in the surgical population compared to the general patient population. The link between OSA and cardiac disease has been well established, although sleep apnea has also been associated with several other postoperative complications, the most feared being respiratory arrest. The following module discusses these aspects of OSA and the different screening tools available to clinicians. A discussion of the logistical barriers to managing OSA and the options for treatment is included to help hospitalists successfully identify and manage these patients during the perioperative period.

Goal

To provide hospitalists with up-to-date information about the perioperative management of sleep apnea and noninvasive respiratory management.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for hospitalists. No prerequisite required.

Learning Objectives

After completing the module, the participant will demonstrate the ability to:

  1. Recognize the increased incidence of sleep apnea in the surgical population.
  2. Highlight the association of sleep apnea with cardiac events.
  3. Describe the association of sleep apnea with perioperative complications.
  4. Assess the utility of different screening tools for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
  5. Define the options and identify the obstacles for treatment of OSA in the postoperative period.
