Upper airway physiology in sleep and anesthesia

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The optimal perioperative management of the patient with, or at risk for, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) requires a multidisciplinary approach. Further studies are needed to facilitate a better understanding of the factors that place a patient with OSA at risk for adverse outcome and of the methods and duration of monitoring that confer optimal patient safety.
