The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) has recently released a new patient education brochure entitled "Obstructive Sleep Apnea and Surgery." This brochure discusses how obstructive sleep apnea can increase patient’s risks of having complications during and after any kind of surgery. Helpful recommendations on how patients should interact with the surgeon, anesthetist, and nurses as well as what steps should be taken if a patient is scheduled for surgery, but thinks they may have obstructive sleep apnea are discussed. This brochure is applicable to all medical fields and its availability should not be limited to the sleep medicine field.
