Abstract

A 27-year-old man presented for sleep evaluation prior to his bariatric surgery. He was obese (weight 310 lb, BMI 44.5 kg/m2), and he reported snoring and excessive daytime sleepiness; his wife witnessed apneas. A split-night polysomnogram was performed, which documented severe obstructive sleep apnea with an apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) of 44/h and a required positive airway pressure of 15 cm H2O for effective treatment. He was prescribed positive airway pressure (PAP) and underwent bariatric surgery 3 weeks after starting therapy.
