Abstract

Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), the partial or complete obstruction of the upper airway during sleep, affects 2% of women and 4% of men Despite the prevalence, disabling symptoms, and substantial associated morbidity and mortality of OSAS, moderate to severe cases are undiagnosed in an estimated 80% of men and 90% of women. In this article, Drs Attarian and Sabri define OSAS, review its presentation, and discuss treatment options.
