Abstract Objectives/Hypothesis: Although drug‐induced sleep endoscopy is often employed to determine the site of obstruction in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) who will undergo upper airway surgery, it remains
Abstract Background Positional obstructive sleep apnoea (POSA), defined as a supine apnoea–hypopnoea index (AHI) twice or more as compared to the AHI in the other positions, occurs in 56 % of
Upper airway collapse during drug induced sleep endoscopy: head rotation in supine position compared with lateral head and trunk position
Abstract Drug induced sedated sleep endoscopy (DISE) is often employed to determine the site, severity and pattern of obstruction in patients with sleep apnea. DISE is usually performed in supine
Summary The obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) is a common cause of morbidity during childhood. Although pediatric OSAS usually stems from adenotonsillar hypertrophy, it is also related to craniofacial anomalies.
Analysis of the influence of head rotation during drug‐induced sleep endoscopy in obstructive sleep apnea
Abstract Objectives/Hypothesis Currently, drug‐induced sleep endoscopy (DISE) in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is predominantly performed in supine position. When positional therapy (avoidance of supine sleeping position in positional OSA (POSA)
