Abstract

More than 18 million adults in the United States have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Although OSA can easily be diagnosed and successfully treated, most people aren't aware they have it. We give you the information you need, including how to identify patients with OSA, sleep-related risk factors to evaluate during your nursing assessment, appropriate interventions to consider, and education approaches for the patient and family.
