Conclusion

Sleep disordered breathing is increasingly being recognized in the surgical population. This morbidity modifies the anesthetic care of affected patients. It is therefore imperative for the anesthesiologist to demonstrate a firm understanding of the patients at risk and the pathogenesis of this disorder. This will enable the anesthesiologist to provide specific care in the perioperative period.
