STUDY OBJECTIVE: The clinical characteristics of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in infants have been insufficiently characterized. Our aim was to describe identifiable comorbidities in infants with obstructive sleep apnea, which may assist in recognizing these patients earlier in their disease course and help improve management. METHODS: This was a single-center, retrospective study involving infants 0-17 months of age with a diagnosis of OSA on the basis of clinical features and nocturnal polysomnography (PSG) at the Mayo Clinic Center for Sleep Medicine between 2000 and 2011...

UNLABELLED: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) affects approximately 20% of Americans. Patients with undiagnosed OSA may experience obstructive episodes during conscious sedation for colonoscopy. The purpose of this investigation was to describe the risk of undiagnosed OSA using the Berlin Questionnaire and to identify the relationship between OSA risk and the number of provider interventions performed to relieve obstructive symptoms during sedation for colonoscopy. METHODS: Adult patients were enrolled from the gastroenterology clinic at the National Military Medical Center (N = 99)...

Perianesthesia nurses care for patients who receive anesthesia, sedation, and analgesia. Anesthesia, sedation, and analgesia can adversely affect the patient with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). Increased patient morbidity and mortality have been associated with the perianesthesia management of the patient with OSAS and can potentially impact every phase of the perianesthesia experience. Negative outcomes have been associated with respiratory arrest after the administration of opioid or sedative medications, difficult intubation or failure to intubate, and respiratory obstruction after extubation...
