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 CME/CE activity, participants should be able to recognize the impact and burden of OSA-related EDS on HRQoL and work productivity.
