Statement of Need

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)-related excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) is about more than being sleepy. OSA-related EDS has been shown to impact work performance, work presenteeism and absenteeism, cognitive dysfunction, physical health, and functioning, occupational and driving accidents, personal relationships, and subsequently health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Despite these burdens, many patients do not seek treatment, often owing to beliefs and attitudes about the need to address these issues with a medical provider in order to seek treatment. Clinicians and patients both need to appreciate the HRQoL and functional impact of OSA-related EDS and thereby the need for early, effective treatment.

Join Drs. Richard Bogan and Terri Weaver as they discuss case 1 of this 3-part CMEO BriefCase series and provide insight into the extensive impact of OSA-related EDS on psychosocial functioning and HRQoL to promote the need for early intervention.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize the impact and burden of OSA-related EDS on HRQoL and work productivity.

Financial Support

This program is supported by an independent medical education grant from Jazz Pharmaceuticals.

Target Audience

Physicians, PAs, nurse practitioners, nurses, and pharmacists specializing in sleep, pulmonology, psychiatry, neurology and/or primary care
