Abstract

Obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) is characterized by repetitive episodes of airflow reduction (hypopnea) or cessation (apnea) due to upper airway collapse during sleep. Increasing recognition and a greater understanding of the scope of this condition have substantially affected the practices of many clinicians. This review provides practical information for physicians assessing patients with OSAHS. It discusses complications, clinical recognition, the polysomnographic report, and treatment of OSAHS, including strategies for troubleshooting problems associated with continuous positive airway pressure therapy.
