Key data helps us understand how often excessive daytime sleepiness may persist in obstructive sleep apnea, despite optimized CPAP therapy.

  • Overview

    While positive airway pressure is the standard of care treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), it may not always be enough to address the excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) that some patients experience. In fact, in one study, up to 34 percent of patients with OSA still reported EDS (Epworth Sleepiness Score ≥10) despite more than 5 hours of CPAP use a night.

    Here, Dr. Richard K. Bogan, Associate Clinical Professor at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine and Chairman and Chief Medical Officer at SleepMed, Inc., sheds light on the prevalence of EDS in OSA. Specifically, Dr. Bogan discusses key data that has raised important observations about how commonly EDS may persist even when patients adhere to CPAP therapy.

    This promotional, non-CME program is intended for U.S. physicians treating OSA.
