Título Consensus criteria for screening commercial drivers for obstructive sleep apnea: Evidence of efficacy
Información bibliográfica Mar. 2008, Vol.50, No.3, p.324-329. 9 ref.
Resumen To validate the recently published consensus criteria for screening commercial drivers for obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), a large sample of commercial drivers was screened for OSA at an occupational medicine clinic and those screening positive were referred for overnight polysomnography. Among the 1443 individuals drivers examined, 190 (13%) of screened positive for OSA. Of these, 134 underwent polysomnography and 94.8% had OSA. The proposed screening criteria were found to have a high predictive value in this population. This study lends further support for mandatory screening of commercial drivers for OSA.
