Track: Obstructive Sleep Apnea & Snoring (OSA)

Obstructive Sleep Apnea & Snoring (OSA)


Obstructive Sleep Apnea involves repetitive upper airway obstruction from collapse of the pharyngeal airway during sleep. This disorder can lead to apneas, hypopneas and respiratory problems.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea procedures include uvulopalatopharyngoplasty, uvulopalatal flap surgery, tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy, genioglossus advancement, maxillomandibular advancement, and other techniques. Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea are free risk factors for problematic ventilation by mask. The endotracheal anesthesia is suitable for OSA surgery because of the threat of aspiration of blood from the surgical site.
