Current Topics in Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Treatment of Excessive Daytime Sleepiness


Excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) is an underdiagnosed and undertreated condition that negatively impacts health and quality of life in people with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Residual EDS can continue to affect patients after sleep apnea therapy is optimized. In this program, expert faculty discuss guideline-supported recommendations for diagnosis and assessment of EDS in OSA and appropriate uses of novel and emerging agents for pharmacologic treatment. An interwoven case illustrates patient-centered strategies for management of EDS in the setting of OSA.
