Statement of Need

Excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) is a cardinal feature of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). It confers significant disability, including compromised safety when driving or at work, impairments in work/academic performance and personal/family relationships, as well as increased prevalence of psychiatric and medical comorbidities. Treatment planning in patients with OSA-related EDS is highly specialized, considering the psychiatric and medical comorbidities that can complicate treatment decisions. Successfully treating persistent OSA-related EDS has been shown to improve medical comorbidities such as hypertension and diabetes. However, developing personalized treatment strategies to optimally manage complex patients often poses significant challenges to clinicians.

Join Drs. Richard Bogan and Paula Schweitzer as they discuss case 2 of this 3-part CMEO BriefCase series and provide guidance on the nuances of personalizing treatment selection and strategies to monitor treatment effectiveness to provide safe, effective, long-term care.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Position treatment strategies for OSA-related EDS based on individual patients' profiles.

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
