Look and Ask to Detect Apnea

Patients rarely present with a sleep disorder. If the patient is middle-aged (35-55) and overweight with a 17.5” neck size, they fit the physical profile. If they fit the profile and answer “yes” to the following three questions, suspect apnea:

  1. Do you sleep poorly at night?
  2. Have you been told you snore loudly?
  3. Are you tired during the day?

Interview Bed Partners

Every effort should be made to interview the patient's bed partner, who may have observed the sleeping patient and witnessed apneic events (snore-pause-gasp cycles).
