Medgeeks Podcast: Excel in practice | Board Review | Medicine |


Jan 12, 2019

This week, I want to do a quick rapid review of OSA (obstructive sleep apnea). It's a topic on the blueprint and one you should know about, because it puts patient's at risk for many complications.

OSA is one of the most common sleep disorders and occurs due to decreased airflow through the upper airway due to soft tissue collapse. This occurs during sleep and leads to derangement of the oxygen-carbon dioxide exchange.

Today we'll touch on:

  • OSA Etiology and Risk factors
  • Signs and Symptoms
  • Diagnostic Testing
  • Management

We'll cover it all in just 5 short minutes.
