Perioperative Management of Sleep Apnea and Noninvasive Respiratory Management for the Hospitalist

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.
