Home-based diagnosis of sleep apnea

September 2010
Internal Medicine Alert;9/29/2010 Clinical Briefs, p144
The article presents a study in comparing home-based diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and treatment of overnight polysomnography (OPSG) for the assessment of potential OSA associated to clinical manifestations.
