Abstract

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the treatment of choice for moderate-to-severe obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Approximately one-half of all patients with OSA fail to comply with CPAP therapy because of mask-related problems, treatment-related side effects, patient attitude, or perceived lack of benefit. Some patients who are intolerant to CPAP therapy may have anatomical problems that are amenable to surgery. For certain patients with OSA, surgery may be an alternative or adjunct to CPAP therapy. It is essential that pharmacists in all practice settings recognize the morbidity and mortality associated with OSA and be familiar with surgical treatment options in appropriate candidates.
