Excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) is a primary feature of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and narcolepsy. Patients with EDS experience a significantly poorer quality of life (QoL) compared to those without, but despite its debilitating impact, EDS often goes undetected and underrated. It is critical that clinicians recognize the impact EDS has on their patients in order to inform optimal treatment decision-making.
This CMEO Journal Club activity is the first in a three-part series that focuses on the presentation of EDS and evidence-based measures to assess its impact on QoL so that clinicians might better educate patients on the significance of detecting and treating EDS.
At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:
- Increase your knowledge of the clinical and QoL implications of EDS to educate patients about the significance of detection and treatment.
