The practical purpose of diagnostic assessment in most cases of obstructive sleep apnea is to predict which patients have symptoms that will improve on treatment. We measured the accuracy with which clinicians make this prediction using polysomnography compared with oximeter-based home monitoring. Patients referred to a sleep center with suspicion of symptomatic obstructive sleep apnea were randomized to have polysomnography or home monitoring. Patients with comorbidity or physiologic… Expand
Diagnosis and Initial Management of Obstructive Sleep Apnea without Polysomnography
TLDR
Most patients with a probability of OSA of 90% or greater do not require polysomnography before starting CPAP, and the conventional PSG approach was superior to the ambulatory approach in terms of controlling obstructive sleep apnea as measured by the apneahypopnea index on CPAP after 3 months of treatment. Expand
Diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome and its outcomes with home portable monitoring.
TLDR
Evaluating the accuracy of PM performed at home to diagnose OSAS and its outcomes after first validating PM in the laboratory setting by comparing it to polysomnography (PSG) revealed comparable diagnostic ability. Expand

TLDR
The present review discusses the clinical assessment of patients with suspected OSAS and also the potential added value of structured questionnaires and clinical prediction models that seek to improve the diagnostic value of clinical assessment from the formalized evaluation of selected clinical features. Expand
Combination of oximetry and sleep questionnaires as screening tools for CPAP initiation in patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
Oximetry accurately predicted CPAP initiation; questionnaires alone had limited value as screening tools for CPAP initiated; the combination of oximetry with questionnaires did not improve their predictive value. Expand
Diagnostic Accuracy of Obstructive Airway Adult Test for Diagnosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnea
TLDR
The OAAT has shown a high correlation with polysomnography and also a high diagnostic accuracy for the diagnosis of OSA and has also been shown to be able to discriminate among the different degrees of severity of O SA. Expand
Portable monitoring and autotitration versus polysomnography for the diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea.
TLDR
A clinical pathway utilizing PM and APAP titration resulted in CPAP adherence and clinical outcomes similar to one using PSG. Expand
Home Sleep Testing and Sleep Apnea: A Review for Dentists
TLDR
Unattended home sleep testing with portable monitors is increasingly being used to diagnose OSA, and evidence has shown that the use of portable monitors results in similar patient outcomes as in-laboratory testing in patients with a high pretest probability for OSA. Expand
Diagnostic Approaches to Sleep-disordered Breathing in the Era of Portable Monitoring and Biomarkers
TLDR
The evolution of in-laboratory PSG for the diagnosis of OSA and titration of PAP is described, and the state of research regarding alternative approaches to the diagnosis is described. Expand
Evaluating the Relationship between Daytime Sleepiness and Polysomnographic Indices in Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea
TLDR
It is suggested that if used appropriately, and in combination with clinical evidence, ESS and BQ can serve as effective instruments for screening patients who need further examination with polysomnography. Expand
Screening for sleep-disordered breathing in a bariatric population.
TLDR
Almost 3/4 of this cohort have at least some degree of sleep-disordered breathing, and approximately half of them require a plan for the respiratory management perioperatively, which is highly prevalent in a cohort of bariatric surgery patients screened with STOP-BANG questionnaires. Expand

Clinical value of polysomnography
TLDR
Neurophysiological sleep recording is unnecessary and oximetry alone is of limited value in the overnight investigation of patients suspected of having SAHS, but many of the undiagnosed patients had moderately severe SAHS and benefited from treatment. Expand
Simplified diagnostic procedure for obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome: lower subsequent compliance with CPAP.
TLDR
There is a risk that ambulatory diagnostic procedures alter the relationship of patients to their disease and/or the medical staff so that subsequent compliance with treatment may be decreased. Expand
Automated analysis of digital oximetry in the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnoea
TLDR
Off line automated analysis of the oximetry signal provides a close estimate of AHI as well as excellent diagnostic sensitivity and specificity for OSA in a population of patients suspected of having OSA. Expand
Objective measurement of patterns of nasal CPAP use by patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
Although the majority (60%) of patients claimed to use CPAP nightly, only 16 of 35 patients met criteria for regular use, defined by at least 4 h of CPAP administered on 70% of the days monitored, and these 16 patients had more years of education, and were more likely to work in professional occupations. Expand
Predictors of improvements in daytime function outcomes with CPAP therapy.
TLDR
Results suggest that standard polysomnographic baseline variables are poor predictors of the response to CPAP therapy, and brief arousals from sleep predict improvements in daytime functioning with CPAP. Expand
A randomized controlled trial of continuous positive airway pressure in mild obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
Nasal CPAP improved self-reported symptoms of OSA, including snoring, restless sleep, daytime sleepiness, and irritability, more than did placebo, but did not improve objective (Multiple Sleep Latency Test) or subjective (Epworth Sleepiness Scale) measures of daytimeSleepiness. Expand
Effectiveness of continuous positive airway pressure in mild sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome.
TLDR
The results suggest that CPAP can be considered in treating patients with mild SAHS on the basis of an improvement in symptoms, and the relief of SAHS-related clinical symptoms was significantly greater in the CPAP group than in the CT group. Expand
Long-term compliance rates to continuous positive airway pressure in obstructive sleep apnea: a population-based study.
TLDR
A population-based CPAP program consisting of consistent follow-up, "troubleshooting," and regular feedback to both patients and physicians can achieve CPAP compliance rates of > 85% over 6 months. Expand
Measurement properties of the calgary sleep apnea quality of life index.
TLDR
It is concluded that the SAQLI has excellent measurement properties for an evaluative instrument, and beginning evidence of validity as a discriminative index, and will be an important outcome measure in clinical trials. Expand
Determinants of continuous positive airway pressure compliance in a group of Chinese patients with obstructive sleep apnea.
TLDR
CPAP usage and compliance were high in this patient population and a high baseline AHI was the only significant independent predictor of better CPAP compliance. Expand
