Book Description

More than 18 million Americans have Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), but more than 90% of cases still remain undiagnosed. This source offers a thorough review of key considerations in the identification and treatment of OSA, and discusses issues often unaddressed in other publications on the topic, such as gender, age, drug interactions, and associated conditions to supply the clinician with best practices, expert recommendations, and clear-cut tables and guidelines for the care of patients with this disorder.
