Screening and diagnosis for sleep-disordered breathing
If you suspect that a patient may have sleep-disordered breathing, this three-step screening process for SDB can get him or her on the path to getting diagnosed.
Can you recognise some of the common symptoms of SDB in your patients?
Ask them to complete a simple five-question sleep aponea symptom test as a quick screener.
Recommend that they take a sleep study to determine whether or not SDB, and if it is, to determine how severe it is.
