Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is common; however, the recognition by clinicians is low. Based on probability studies with in-lab polysomnography, 1 in 5 adults have at least mild OSA, and 1 in 15 have OSA of moderate or worse severity. An estimated 75% to 80% of cases that could benefit from treatment remain undiagnosed.  OSA is associated with increased incidence of hypertension, heart disease, atrial fibrillation, stroke, glucose intolerance, and impotence. Untreated OSA can cause daytime sleepiness, cognitive impairment, loss in work productivity, an increased risk of automobile crashes, and can significantly reduce quality of life. Severe, untreated OSA may increase cardiovascular mortality.
