Sleep Apnea Screening Cuts Surgical Complications
Date:4/23/2008

ociety of Anesthesiologists Task Force for Perioperative Management of Patients With Obstructive Sleep Apnea, said in a prepared statement.

However, hospitals and clinics don't do routine OSA screening of surgical patients because there hasn't been a simple, practical method that's been proven to be effective.

"An overnight sleep study is the most reliable way to diagnose OSA, but it is too time-consuming and expensive for every patient to receive before surgery," Chung said.

In a companion study to their STOP questionnaire study, Chung and colleagues validated two other screening OSA screening tools for surgical patients -- the 11-question Berlin Questionnaire and the American Society of Anesthesiologists checklist, which contains 12 checkable items for adults and 14 for children.
