They were also excluded if they were already being treated for OSAH.
Patients were categorized by OSAH severity based on the apnea hypopnea index (AHI): normal polysomnography (AHI of 5 or fewer events per hour), mild OSAH (AHI greater than 5 and up to 15), moderate OSAH (AHI greater than 15 but less than 30), and severe OSAH (AHI of 30 or more per hour).

Robin Newhouse, PhD, RN, professor, OSAH, and director of the Doctor of Nursing Practice program, was awarded the Outstanding Pathfinder Award by the Maryland Nurses Association (MNA) at their annual conference, held Oct.
Once their problem is identified and treated (for example, OSAHS treated by NCPAP), they should re-evaluate the degree of control they need to keep their glucose levels in check.
The rise in OSAHS is a major cause for concern when it comes to preventing road accidents.
Drivers should check for symptoms of OSAHS and be extra vigilant when planning long drives.
Symptoms of OSAHS such as fatigue and disruptive sleep are nonspecific, and many cases remained undiagnosed.
Because the sequelae of untreated OSAHS are significant, prompt diagnosis and treatment are crucial.
This was an observational rather than a blinded study but the authors were able to compare the incidence of fatal and non-fatal cardiovascular events in 377 simple snorers, 235 men with untreated OSAHS, 372 patients with OSAHS treated with CPAP and 264 healthy men (age and BMI matched) recruited from the general population as controls.
Once diagnosed and the patient either titrated onto CPAP or treated surgically (UP3 and T & A or both) or both CPAP'd and treated surgically, the OSAHS sufferer predictably should sleep soundly and restfully, arising refreshed and energized.
In studies of OSAHS and SWSD, the overall safety profile of PROVIGIL was demonstrated to be consistent with the profile already established in patients with narcolepsy.
